Bell Helicopter announced today the release of a new website www.scoutsout.com that is dedicated to the men and women who fly and maintain the Kiowa Warrior. The site explores the aircraft’s history, current actions in theater and shows its transformation as the future Armed Aerial Scout solution. The site completes its mission with riveting, first-hand accounts of the Kiowa Warrior from its pilots and maintainers.
“SCOUTSOUT.COM is a great way for veteran CAV pilots to reconnect with each other and share their stories,” said Michael Miller, director, Military Business Development. “We wanted to provide an outlet for our warfighters to share their experiences.”
Currently, the site contains previously published stories from Kiowa Warrior pilots and those associated with the aircraft, but it is designed to allow others including ground troops to post their Kiowa Warrior experiences in theater.
“With 750,000 combat hours, the Kiowa Warrior is the most rugged aircraft in the Army, and the pilots who fly these aircraft are true warriors,” said Miller. “We want to hear their stories about how these aircraft help protect our warfighters on the ground. It’s our way of paying tribute to their heroic actions.”
The site also provides a tribute to the history of the Kiowa Warrior and the Scouts who fly them. It provides information on the OH-58D, the work Bell Helicopter is doing to support the future F model (Cockpit and Sensor Upgrade Program) which provides an infusion of technology for today’s battlefield, as well as the OH-58 Block II fleet representative demonstrator which has been developed in anticipation of a U.S. Army future requirement of 6K/95 performance. The Block II OH-58 provides a cost efficient alternative for the U.S. Army and U.S. taxpayer, and will demonstrate Bell Helicopter’s ability to meet or exceed all performance requirements for the Army’s Armed Aerial Scout.
The site also contains links to Bell Helicopter’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages where warfighters and maintainers can share stories and photos. _________________ R22 2.6 h/r wanting more, a hell of a lot more
