Summary[edit]

Description
English: An Apache Attack helicopter of the Army Air Corps in Afghanistan fires rockets at insurgents during a patrol in 2008.

Designed to hunt and destroy tanks, the Apache attack helicopter has significantly improved the Army's operational capability.

The Apache attack helicopter can operate in all weathers, day or night and detect, classify and prioritise up to 256 potential targets in a matter of seconds. It carries a mix of weapons including rockets, Hellfire missiles and a 30mm chain gun, as well as a state of the art fully integrated defensive aid suite.

In addition to the distinctive Longbow radar located above the rotor blades, this aircraft is equipped with a day TV system, thermal imaging sight and direct view optics.
