Some stuff going on.
Which reminds me of my favorite painting of all time.
Iraq needed some armed reconnaissance helicopters. But they don’t have a ton of infrastructure to operate something like the OH-58D. So the US modified some off the shelf Bell 407 light helicopters, and shipped those. What’s interesting is that they didn’t hire a defense contractor to do it, but rather the Army’s Redstone Arsenal.
Sox is not amused.
