The OH-30 Kingfisher is a small, single-rotor military helicopter operated by the Bastion Army during the Pendulum Wars, and later adopted by its successor, the Coalition of Ordered Governments, during the years of the frenetic Locust-Human War.

The Kingfisher was designed to fulfill small-unit air assault, reconnaissance, and observational roles in military aviation responsibilities, and the OH-30 is a highly versatile airframe with hardpoints and a modular superstructure that have spawned a number of specialized variants to adapt to an evolving battlespace; a number of variants were in use by both the Bastion and C.O.G. militaries.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The OH-30 Kingfisher is named after the real-world Kingfisher (family Alcedines), a suborder of small and brightly-colored birds.
  • General concepts for the OH-30 were developed from the real-world U.S. Army MH-6 Little Bird and the OH-58 Kiowa.
  • "OH-30" stands for "Observation Helicopter, Model 30", in line with real-world U.S. armed forces designations for military helicopters.
