Following the deadly attack on a joint American-Kenyan base earlier this month, the Kenyan military just got several light scout attack helicopters.

More specifically, the Kenyan military received 12 MD 530F Cayuse Warrior scout attack helicopters.

The fuel tanks of the MD 530Fs can withstand direct hits from ammunition up to and including 7.62mm. Also the fuselage offers ballistic protection from small-arms fire to the crew. As far as their armament is concerned, the Cayuse Warriors can carry a heavy punch: their weaponry includes an FNH HMP400 Pod with M3P Heavy Machine Gun (the FN version of the venerable M2 Browning .50 caliber heavy machine gun) and an M260 Rocket Pod with 2.75” rockets.

According to the Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), the contract is worth approximately $253 million and includes, aside from the helicopters, 24 FNH HMP400 machinegun pods, 24 M260 rocket launchers, 4,032 M151 rockets, 1,536 2.75-inch M274 smoke signature warhead rockets and hundreds of thousands of .50 caliber ammo.
