I hope y’all aren’t just yanking our chain about the OH-58. If you are (polychop) you will alienate your fan base. Good luck. We are watching.

AI won't shoot if you are mostly obscured by terrain so the mast should be effective
Plus lase and hellfire range exceeds ai main armament similar to the vikhr

not sure if some of you know how small this tiny chopper is... it is so frakin tiny,,, they usually had a small gun on the front... under the front end, and at most could carry maybe a stretcher (on a skid) of a wounded soldier, but that weight would totally throw the balance... of course no chopper is really quiet, but it was as close to it as it could.... not any rotor slap that I remember, so being sneaky was easier.....

I have to ask the guy who had his helos (under his command) at Ramstein Air Base. he also flew in Vietnam, but I only serviced the ones at Ramstein circa 1980. it turns out I now live near one of the guys who was a combat pilot and trainer on several helos that were there. I wasn't familiar with model numbers.

it had to have been the

OH-58A

with the gun on it but no passenger seat.

the photos make it look much larger. IMHO

The Gun, a M134, was mounted on the side on the early Kiowas. Like on the Loach.
The Bundesheer here in Austria still uses Choppers in this configuration. They are OH-58Bs, the export variant of the A.
