McDonnell Douglas AH-64 Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter
The AH-64 Apache, the world's premier attack helicopter was designed to be an extremely tough survivor under combat. In 1983, Hughes Helicopter, Inc., later McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Systems, won the prestigious Collier trophy for the design of the AH-64 Apache. The prototype Apache was developed during the Cold War and made its first flight in 1975. Hughes Helicopter, Inc., later McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Systems were awarded the development contract.
The United States Army received their first operational AH-64 Apache attack helicopters in January 1984. It is a highly manoeuvrable, heavily armed ground-support attack helicopter. It has a target acquisition and designation system (TADS) and a pilot's night vision sensor (PNVS) to enable it to perform in most weathers and around the clock. The AH-64 Apache uses the same T700 engines as other US Military helicopters like the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopter to make maintenance and logistics less complicated. It can rapidly detect, classify, prioritise and engage stationary or moving enemy targets at standoff ranges in nearly all weather conditions using its Longbow's fire-control radar advanced avionics suite and Hellfire missiles. It can attack tanks, armoured vehicles, and troops with rockets, missiles and 30mm cannon. It was designed to stop the tanks of the Soviet Eastern Block during the Cold War but has seen active service in the jungles of Central America, the deserts of the Middle East and the Kosovo conflict.
