AH-64D Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter (Infographics)

The AH-64D Apache Longbow is a US four-blade, twin-turboshaft attack helicopter for rear, close, and shaping missions including deep precision strike. It is able to conduct distributed operations, precision strikes against relocatable targets and to provide armed reconnaissance in day, night, obscured battlefield and adverse weather conditions.

The AH-64D Apache Longbow is equipped with a glass cockpit and advanced sensors. The AN/APG-78 Longbow millimeter-wave fire-control radar (FCR) target acquisition system is capable of simultaneously tracking up to 128 targets and engaging up to 16 at once. A radio modem integrated with the sensor suite allows data to be shared with ground units and other Apaches, allowing them to engage targets detected by a helicopter.
