Hasegawa's version of the US Army's Attack Helicopter AH-64D Apache Longbow is considered by modellers as one of the best version of this powerful aircraft. The superb engineering, fit, detail and the possibility of building a fine model from a box kit; makes this a complete package and one of those model pieces that you need to possess!
The AH-64 Apache is the Army's heavy division/corps attack helicopter. The AH-64D Longbow remanufacture effort incorporates a millimeter wave fire control radar, radar frequency interferometer, fire-and-forget radar-guided HELLFIRE missile and cockpit management and digitization enhancements. The combination of the FCR, RFI, and the advanced navigation and avionics suite of the aircraft provide increased situational awareness, lethality and survivability.
The AH-64 Apache has a four-blade main rotor and a four-blade tail rotor. The crew sits in tandem, with the pilot sitting behind and above the copilot/gunner. Both crew members are capable of flying the aircraft and performing methods of weapon engagements independently.
