Apache is an American twin-engine, tailwheel attack helicopter. It was developed in the 1970s and features tandem seated crew and wide variety of weapons. AH-64 production started in 1975 and continues to this day. More than 2400 are built. The attack helicopter served in multiple theaters and various operations. Amongst these, most famous are Panama, Desert Storm, Kosovo, Afghanistan, OIF and others. AH-64 is operated by USA, UK, UAE, Israel, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, Japan, Greece, Egypt and others. Partially, Apache’s fame came from the American action movie “Fire Birds”. In the movie, Nicolas Cage stars alongside Tommy Lee Jones, both helicopter pilots. The AH-64 Apache plays the protagonists’ main weapons’ platform. Nevertheless, the most recognizable AH-64 variant is the D, which features AN/APG-78 radar, mounted above the main rotor. Thanx to the large radar dome and the overall dark appearance of the helicopter, AH-64 posses extremely aggressive looks and memorable silhouette.
