The highly manoeuvrable Apache AH-64D attack helicopter can be deoployed for a wide range of missions. It has advanced observation and navigation systems, making it extremely well suited for reconnaissance missions.
The various on-board weapon systems provide protection to ground troops or transport helicopters. This helicopter can also be deployed offensively against armoured vehicles, tanks or targets such as command positions and radar installations, artillery positions and guided-weapons launch sites. The Apache can carry out those missions during the day and night and in poor weather.
