Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache Diecast Model
US Army, 2003

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache   8.75"   7.25"

The AH-64D Apache Longbow, is equipped with a glass cockpit and advanced sensors, the most noticeable of which being the AN/APG-78 Longbow millimeter-wave fire-control radar (FCR) target acquisition system and the Radar Frequency Interferometer (RFI), housed in a dome located above the main rotor. The radome's raised position enables targets detection while the helicopter is behind obstacles (e.g. terrain, trees or buildings). The AN/APG-78 is capable of simultaneously tracking up to 128 targets and engaging up to 16 at once, an attack can be initiated within 30 seconds. A radio modem integrated with the sensor suite allows data to be shared with ground units and other Apaches; allowing them to fire on targets detected by a single helicopter. The aircraft is powered by a pair of uprated T700-GE-701C engines. The forward fuselage was expanded to accommodate new systems to improve survivability, navigation, and 'tactical internet' communications capabilities. In February 2003, the first Block II Apache was delivered to the U.S. Army, featuring digital communications upgrades.

Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for an advanced attack helicopter, the AH-64 was first flown on September 30th, 1975. Called "The Apache," this formidable helicopter replaced the AH-1 Cobra as the principal attack helicopter for the US Army. At the time of its introduction, the Apache was revolutionary, with an innovative helmet mounted display and improved crash survivability. It is heavily armored and has been called a "Flying Tank," not only because of its defenses but also because of its ability to inspire fear on the battlefield. The Apache has become a symbol of Army airpower, serving in both Gulf Wars and in Afghanistan.
