Bell Dispatches Last Kiowa SEP
The U.S. Army Armed Scout Helicopter program has received its final safety enhancement program (SEP) from Bell for the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior. The program upgrades the helicopters by adding engines with digital electronic controls, as well as improving crashworthy seats, airbags and avionics. Over the program’s 13-year span, Bell delivered more than 290 helicopters to the Army.
