AH-64D Apache Longbow

The AH-64D is the latest version of the famous 'Apache' family of US military attack helicopters. The popular distinction from the "regular" (previous) Apache versions is the special 'Radome' which is located on top of the main rotor mast and contains a Fire Control Radar and other new systems which improves the effectiveness of the gunship on the battlefield.

This new version was also upgraded in other areas (such as extra defense, more powerful engines, etc.).

TAOW's AH-64D variant is equipped with the latest Block III equipment/improvements.

This attack helicopter's main objective will be to attack ground targets, specially tanks and other ground vehicles. Carrying a deadly assortment of armament which ranges from unguided rockets to anti-tank guided missiles and a deadly 30mm automatic cannon, the Apache is sure to be a key asset on the US Military quest.
