Bell Ch-136 Kiowa

The Bell OH-58 Kiowa, later designated CH-136 Kiowa, constitutes a family of single-engine, single-rotor military helicopters utilized for observation, utility, and direct fire support. Bell Helicopter produced the OH-58 for the United States Army, basing it on its Model 206A JetRanger helicopter. Bell had previously competed against 12 other companies in response to a proposal by the United States Navy to create a light observation helicopter, ultimately falling short against rival companies. However, this led to the production of the Bell 206A, which eventually emerged victorious in the re-opened competition in 1967. The U.S. Army designated the aircraft as the OH-58A and, adhering to naming conventions, assigned it the Kiowa designation.
