McDonnell Douglas AH-64D APACHE LONGBOW

The AH-64D Apache Longbow is the evolution of the powerful AH-64A Apache attack helicopter. This variant is even more effective thanks to more powerful engines and the installation of an advanced radar installed in a dome that gives this helicopter its particular look. Since entering service in 1997, this helicopter has participated in numerous combat operations with excellent results, but is currently being replaced by the AH-64E Apache Guardian variant that will keep this lethal helicopter on the front line for many years to come.
