Eyes of the army
Originally considered the "ugly duckling" of the helicopter family, after many upgrades and modifications the Kiowa finally found its niche. It functions as a light scout helicopter. The strange, somewhat freaky looking bulbous sphere on its rotor mast is a spotter pod equipped with a laser designator. It helps the Kiowa acquire targets for the gunships without exposing the crew to hostile attention. The "Triceratops Horns" on the roof of the heli are for catching and cutting wires as the Kiowa blurs through low altitude maneuvers. Kit features two decal sets.
