Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache   8.75"   7.25"

In 2001 Japan chose the Fuji built AH-64DJP Apache Longbow to replace their Fuji AH-15 Cobras. Initially sixty aircraft were ordered with the first Apaches arriving in 2006. But of the sixty ordered the number was reduced to only thirteen because by 2013 Boeing would discontinue manufacturing parts for the D variant as well as an extremely high cost per helicopter. In 2017 the JGSDF began to operate only one squadron of ten AH-64DJP Apaches with the remaining three going to training units. AH-64D JG-4501 BuNo 02-0001 first wore serial N3216N.

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.
