The AH-64 Apache is a twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a crew of two. The AH-64D Apache Longbow and AH-64E Apache Guardian are two modern versions of this helicopter, with the "D" variant being the predecessor to the more advanced "E" model.
Let's dive into some details about the AH-64D Apache Longbow:
- Tandem Cockpit: The crew sits in tandem, with the pilot in the rear and the co-pilot/gunner (CPG) in the front.
- AN/APG-78 Longbow Fire Control Radar (FCR): This is a distinctive feature of the AH-64D. It's a dome installed on a mast above the main rotor, allowing the helicopter to detect, classify, and prioritize multiple ground targets.
- Weapon Systems: AGM-114 Hellfire missiles: These are air-to-ground missiles primarily used against armored targets. 2.75-inch (70 mm) Hydra 70 rockets: General-purpose unguided rockets. M230 Chain Gun: A 30mm automatic cannon mounted under the fuselage and controlled by the CPG.
- Engines: The AH-64D is powered by two T700-GE-701C engines.
- Modern Avionics: The AH-64D introduced advanced avionics and electronics systems compared to its predecessor, the AH-64A. This includes updated digital communications systems for improved ground troops and other aircraft coordination.
- Upgrades and Variants: There have been several Block upgrades to the AH-64D, adding capability and addressing obsolescence issues.
The AH-64D Apache Longbow represents a significant evolution over the earlier AH-64A model. After the D model, the AH-64E Apache Guardian was introduced, offering further improvements in terms of performance, avionics, and armament capabilities.
