"The Bell 206B-3 Kiowa was the Australian Army's primary
Light Observation Helicopter. First operated by the Australian Army
Aviation Corps in Vietnam (where they used leased OH-58As from the US
Army), the Bell 206B-3 was produced in Australia with high skids and
various role equipment. Its primary role was as the eyes of the ground
commander in gathering intelligence on the battlefield, calling in
artillery missions or close air support and various other utility roles.
As a reconnaissance platform, it was replaced by the
ARH Tiger and was then relegated
to training duties.
