Description:
Conversion the the standard BIS Kiowa Warrior from Flashpoint to Arma and now to Arma2

OH-58 Kiowa is a family of single-engine, single-rotor, military helicopters used for observation, utility,
and direct fire support. Bell Helicopter originally manufactured the OH-58 for the United States Army, based on the
206A JetRanger helicopter. The Kiowa has been in continuous use by the U.S. Army since 1969. The latest model,
the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, is primarily operated in an armed reconnaissance role in support of ground troops.

Fully functioning cockpit with dials etc.
All versions will have the Mast Mounted Sight, operated by the gunner, primary use is for laser designation/spotting.

Future plans:
I also have big plans for the next release, at the moment the addon will split in two, one will be 100% ACE to make use of the ACE systems/weapons the other not dependent on anything.


Changelog:
v1.5
- more compatible with OA
- now features fully functional gunners optices with rangefinder and Flir options
- changed the faction to be the same as the standatd BIS US army one

v1.0
- first OA release
