    Greece Receives 70 OH-58D and Last Chinook

    Helis, May 21, 2019 - On May 16th, 70 OH-58D Kiowa Warrior and one CH-47D Chinook helicopters arrived to the port of Volos in Greece aboard the cargo ship “Ocean Giant”.

    Lieutenant General George Kambas, Hellenic Army Chief of General Staff and Army Aviation Director Christos Iliopoulos were present during the unloading process.

    Six of the Kiowas were ready to fly and flew directly to Stefanovikio Army Aviation Base with an American pilot and a Greek as co-pilot. It took another three days to complete the unloading of the rest.

    The acquisition of these 70 former US Army helicopters was approved by the Government Council for Foreign Affairs and Defence (KYSEA) in December 2017 at a procurement cost of €44 million making each Kiowa value at €630,000.

    Along the OH-58, which are used mainly for observation and reconnaissance, the ship transported the last of ten heavy lift CH-47D Chinook also acquired from US Army surplus material stocks and first announced in 2014 in a $150 million deal.
