France. Ile-de-France Department. Paris. Eurosatory 2022. Exhibit stand. Two French soldiers look at the helicopter AH64D Apache with a Longbow radar from the  United States Army Air Forces (USAAF or AAF). The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a crew of two. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage, and four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons for carrying armament and stores, typically a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. The AH-64 has significant systems redundancy to improve combat survivability. Eurosatory is the international reference for land and airland Defence and Security exhibition.13.6.2022 © 2022 Didier Ruef
