The Kawasaki OH-1 Ninja is a twin-engined two-seat light observation helicopter produced by the Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki Heavy Industries, operated by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force. It is the first helicopter developed entirely in Japan.-

Is a conventional machine that is relatively small and of typical gunship helicopter configuration. Its structure comprises, by weight, 40 per cent carbonfibre-reinforced plastics, and it features a fenestron type tail rotor.-

Each crew member has two LCD colour multi-function displays, and the gunner has a head-up display.

The mission avionics include a trainable roof-mounted Kawasaki package (forward of the main rotor) with a Fujitsu thermal imager, NEC colour TV camera and NEC laser rangefinder. Protection is enhanced by the installation of an infra-red jammer on the helicopter's spine to rear of the main gearbox.-
