The current OH-58D Kiowa Warrior has universal pylons capable of accepting FFAR, Hellfire, Stinger and/or 0.50 caliber machine gun (see www.fas.org). However, this was a big upgrade over previous versions, and was introduced in '91. I do not have any data on the version current to 85 on hand. I seem to recall that the FFAR rockets then carried were more for target designation than a purely combat role. The Kiowa was (and still is) primarily a scout helicopter.

The normal loadout is one FFAR launcher and one TOW launcher if I'm not mistaken.

Strange ... I cut and pasted direct from my browser.  Try this

and then scroll down to towards Helicopter systems.

The link worked for me.  This is what I got:

Sorry, but it works for me. Try doing an internet search for ....

U.S. Army TACOM - Rock Island
Aircraft Armament and Small Arms Commodity business unit.

Alternatively, find the OH-58 page at www.fas.org and scroll down to the links at the bottom. Althought come to think of it I think that didn't work first time for me and I had to manually play around with the address in my browser.

The resource is worth the searching though.

Hmmm, the AH-6C 'Little Bird Gun'. An aircraft that could be modelled if BIS / modders wished to portray a (very) Light Attack Helicopter. Can carry Hellfires as well.

Apparently the Minigun used to shake the airframe to bits.
