AH-64D Apache Longbow – The AH-64 Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter and is used by the U.S. Boeing delivered the first U.S. Army Apache AH-64A in January 1984. Since then, the U.S. Army and other nations have received more than 2,200 AH-64 Apache attack helicopters. The AH-64 Apache has a four-blade main rotor and a four-blade tail rotor. The crew sits in tandem, with the pilot sitting behind and above the copilot/gunner. Both crew members are capable of flying the aircraft and performing methods of weapon engagements independently. The compartment and the rotor blades are designed to sustain a hit from 23-millimeter rounds. The airframe includes some 2,500 pounds or 1,100 kilograms of protection and has a self-sealing fuel system to protect against ballistic projectiles. One of the most distinguishing features at the introduction of the Apache was its helmet mounted display, the Integrated Helmet, and Display Sighting System; among other abilities the pilot or gunner can slave the helicopter’s 30 mm automatic M230 Chain Gun to his helmet, making the gun track head movements to point at where he looks. Armaments include a 30 mm M230 Chain Gun; Hydra 70 mm and CRV7 70 mm air-to-ground rockets; AGM-114 Hellfire; AIM-92 Stinger missiles and the gunship is powered by 2 × T700-GE-701C turboshafts with a max speed: 227 mph with a range of 300 miles.
