OH-58 Scout helicopters perform live fire training with rockets and machine guns near Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

The Kiowa was, unfortunately, retired from service with the FY2015 defense budget. To replace it, the U.S. Army will now be fielding AH-64 Apache Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) units, in which an Apache attack chopper will also be controlling its wingman, an unmanned drone, from the cockpit.
