File Description

These are 2 flat matte finish repaints of the default Bell 206B JetRanger helicopter included with FSX. No other files are necessary. The liveries are for Bell OH-58 Kiowas - California Army National Guard #0-21868 and U.S. Army 1st Cavalry, 2nd Battalion, 227th Air Regiment #0-16192. Appropriate pilot markings are included with each repaint. The Bell OH-58 Kiowa is basically the civilian Bell 206 series helicopter with longer rotor blades and an upgraded engine (also military avionics). Over 2,200 Kiowas have been delivered to the U.S. Army and have been actively serving in a variety of roles since the Vietnam War. The armed version is known as the AH-58 Kiowa attack helicopter. The Bell OH-58 Kiowa can be found in countries such as Canada, Australia, and Israel (among others), whether exported by Bell or built under contract by Agusta. The flat matte finish gives a more weathered look and is considered more prototypical for military camouflage as it is less reflective. However, some people do not like the look but I offer it as an option. Enjoy!
