Approximately 375 Kiowas are in service all over the world as armed recon copters. Kiowa Warrior, a single engine, double-bladed armed reconnaissance helicopter has been deployed in support of armed forces of the United States around the world including Somalia, Haiti and the Gulf of Arabia (Desert Shield and Desert Storm).
