The AH-64D Longbow Apache is currently the most advanced

Following a 1972 U.S. Army requirement for a new Advanced Attack Helicopter
to replace the AH-1 Hueycobra, two manufacturers were chosen to build competition prototypes, the Bell YAH-63 and the Hughes YAH-64, the latter winning
the competition and making its first flight on 30 September 1975. After protracted development with several machines, in 1980 the Martin-Marietta
TADS/PNVS (Target Acquisition and Designation Sight/Pilot’s Night Vision
Sensor) was adopted for the night attack role. The name Apache was adopted
in 1981 and production of the AH-64A began in 1982; in 1984 Hughes was
absorbed by McDonnell Douglas. Operation Desert Storm in 1991 saw the first
major conflict for the U.S. Army Apaches, where they devastated Iraqi armour,
using Rockwell AGM-114 Hellfire laser-guided anti-tank missiles, podded 70mm
Hydra rockets and the 30mm M230 Chain Gun under the nose. The front cockpit houses the co-pilot/gunner and the pilot occupies the raised rear cockpit. A
total of 821 Apaches was delivered to the U.S. Army by 1996.
Experiences in the 1991 Gulf War rapidly led to the development of the AH-64D
Longbow version, with its very powerful and sophisticated long range fire control radar (FCR) mounted above the rotor head. The Hellfire ATM requires a
direct line of sight with the target, and together with completely new advanced
avionics systems, much of it housed in the enlarged box fairings each side of the
fuselage, the Apache could now detect and attack targets while remaining virtually hidden from the enemy. Another advantage of the radar is that it can
simultaneously survey, scan and track over 1,000 targets at long ranges even in
the worst visibility conditions, and of these it can identify 128 with attack priority automatically given to 16 of these for a full load of Hellfires. Not all U.S. Army
AH-64Ds carry the Longbow radar, as evidenced by many machines seen in the
2003 Iraq conflict. The Royal Netherlands Air Force has received its complement
of 30 AH-64Ds, some of which may be fitted with the Longbow radar; the
British Army and several other air arms are also equipped with the type. The AH64D is powered by two 1,723 shp General Electric GE-T700-GE-701C turboshaft
engines, giving a maximum speed of 261km/h (162mph). Main rotor diameter:
14.63m (48ft.) Length (rotors turning): 17.76m (58ft 3in.) Height: 4.95m (16ft 3in.)
