OH-58 Kiowa Warrior
by
Southy


Description:
Conversion the the standard BIS Kiowa Warrior from Flashpoint to Arma.

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.


Features:
All versions will have the Mast Mounted Sight, operated by the gunner, primary use is for laser designation/spotting.
Zoom is approx 1.5 longer than cobra.

Weapon loadouts:
2 x Hellfire, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
2 x hellfire, 7 rnds FFAR
7 rnds FFAR, 1 x XM296 .50 Cal. (12.7-mm) machine gun
7 rnds FFAr, 7 rnds FFAR
2 x Hellfire, 2 x Stinger

Special notes: hellfires can laser lock so two Kiowa's working in pink teams can fire Hellfires at fixed targets

like buidlings etc. The first version, 2 x hellfire, 1 x M296 can self lock laser hellfires, first select the laser and ping the target, second use guns to lock target, second select hellfire and fire away, this is the only version that can self lock the hellfires.


Installation:
Just extract the pbo in the ArmA\Addons folder and you should be good to go.
Or (as we always recommend) use mod folders to keep your mods organized and prevent errors.
Check our FAQ for a clear explanation.

First flight


Known issues:
The Eyball isn't the correct shape.
The FFAR version fires the last two rockets from the right hand side (arma engine coded?) Hellfire side.
The Stinger version, fires the missiles from the hellfire side.
When in the turret view the gunner can use the cannon like the Cobra except it can fire in 360 degrees (AI gunners will also use the 50.cal gun like a normal turret weapon)
