Helicopters

Canadian Armed Forces CH-136 Kiowa

Initially known as COH-58A were delivered between 1971 and 1972 as a Light Observation Helicopter (LOH), performing duties such as reconnaissance, command and liaison or artillery fire direction. Although similar in appearance to the trainer CH-139 Jet Ranger major differences between them included the main rotor blades and dynamic components.
They were replaced by the CH-146 Griffon



This is a 403 Squadron Gagetown helicopter and it looks like the Gagetown range. This picture was taken before the RAR and IR Suppression was added and before the HCCR mod. All the CH-136's had the C-18 Engine and the CH-139's had the C-20. After the wire strike mod added; the lower cutter was removed on this one because it was used for autorotation training when not carrying the minitat. So this picture was taken before the modified lower wire strike was designed with the break away tip. Given that I would guess that this picture was from around 1981. Oh, and you don't replace a Kiowa with a Slug... you change the role and assign a new machine to do the new role. Kiowa roles: Forward Air Control, Arty Authorized OP, Recce, Pink Team Lead, Radio Rebroadcast, Aerial Photo, Target Marking, Radio Location capability, Command and Liaison.... Fire Suppression with minitat (lots of bullets - little accuracy) - Old Kiowa Pilot.
