The OH-58 Kiowa, as a scout helicopter, has the primary missions of reconnaissance,
surveillance, and intelligence gathering. The latest version is the OH-58D Kiowa
Warrior, which has the additional mission capability of target acquisition and/or
laser designation. It can operate during the day or night and in adverse weather.
Under a program designated Prime Chance, some OH-58Ds have been retrofitted
to carry air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons.
