In late 2010 the 1st Battalion, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade along with 4 other units deployed to Afghanistan in support of "Operation Enduring Freedom XI". These units were dispersed to various locations throughout the country with the 1-10 Aviation going to Base Salerno, Khost Province, Afghanistan as Task Force "Tigershark". The AH-64 Apaches were tasked with security and reconnaissance mission over eastern Afghanistan. The 10th CAB Apache helicopters also provide aerial surveillance and close combat attack capabilities in support ground forces.

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.
