ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has modified a contract with Rolls-Royce for maintenance services on the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior military helicopter fleet.
Rolls-Royce was awarded a $32 million Contractor Logistics Support services deal to provide repairs and other maintenance work on the Army's Kiowa Warriors.
Under the CLS agreement, Rolls-Royce will supply its field representatives to provide hands-on support for Kiowa Warrior units when the helicopters are deployed for missions in various military theaters.
"The OH-58 Kiowa Warrior fleet provides a vital capability for the U.S. Army, performing critical troop support and reconnaissance missions, often in extremely harsh environmental conditions," Ken Roberts, president of the Rolls-Royce helicopter business, said in a statement.
"Since 2000, the comprehensive services Rolls-Royce delivers have enabled the U. S. Army to concentrate on performing safe and effective missions in multiple theaters of operation."
