Hughes AH-64D Longbow Apache   8.75"   7.25"

In 2008 the United Arab Emirate began to upgrade the 30 AH-64A Apaches they had purchased in 1991 through 1994 to the new AH-64D standards. The work began in May 2008 and continued through November 2009. One of the upgraded AH-64Ds was No. 074 that originally was BuNo. 94-0342 c/n PV920. In 2016 the U.S. approved the sale of 37 AH-64Es of which 28 were remanufactured AH-64Ds and 9 total new helicopters. These helicopters will strengthen the UAE infrastructure and protect its border from any possible incursions.

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.
