You are right - Light Observation Helicopter. As far as the US Army was concerned they had a series of six LOH designs with the HO designation between 1956 to 1962. After that the LOH helicopters were redesignated as OH.

The Army still refers to light observation helicopters such as the OH-6 or OH-58 as LOH (pronounced 'loach').

The Kaman K-750 was to be a US-Built SA-341 Gazelle.
