The AH-64A Apache is a twin-engined, tandem-seat, four-bladed articulated rotor system attack helicopter.
With its crew of two rated aviators, the pilot occupies the rear cockpit and a copilot-gunner occupies the front cockpit.
The aircraft has day, night, and limited adverse weather fighting capabilities.
The aircraft is equipped with a Target Acquisition Designation Sight (TADS), a laser range finder/designator (LRF/D)
used to designate for the firing of a Hellfire missile and to provide range to target information for the fire control system,
and a Pilot Night Vision Sensor (PNVS) that allows the crew to navigate and attack in darkness and
in adverse weather conditions at extended standoff ranges.
The Apache has a full range of aircraft survivability equipment and has the ability to withstand hits from
rounds as large 23mm, in critical areas. The aircraft is powered by two General Electric T700-GE-701 1698 shp turboshaft engines.
