The AH-64 Apache, the world's premier attack helicopter, was designed to be an extremely tough survivor on the battlefield. In 1983, Hughes Helicopters, Inc., which became a part of McDonnell Douglas Corp. in 1984, won the prestigious Collier Trophy for the design of the AH-64A Apache. The next-generation version of the combat-proven Apache, the AH-64D Apache Longbow, first flew in 1997. This 21st Century rotorcraft, is a fully integrated weapon system that includes the Longbow radar, fire-and-forget Hellfire missiles, and advanced avionics and electronics that set it apart from other combat helicopters.

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.
