Retired Kiowa Warriors To Boost Greek Army 24 January, 2018

Greece expects to conclude administrative work related to its planned acquisition of 70 Bell Helicopter OH-58D Kiowa Warrior armed reconnaissance helicopters which were retired from the US Army before the end of this year. 

The Kiowas will be sourced through the Excess Defense Articles (EDA) program. Greek Government approved the purchase on 9 January, allocating $54 million for training flight and technical personnel, restoring the aircraft to active status and acquiring spare parts for an initial two years of operations. 

The helicopters will be equipped with Lockheed Martin AGM-114K Hellfire missiles and Hydra-70 rockets.
