The AH-64 Apache is an American attack helicopter used from the end of the Cold War to the present. The Apache was designed in the 1970s as a helicopter for anti-armor warfare. The helicopter was designed to detect and destroy tanks in high-mobility combat.

It has a main and tail rotor, a tandem cockpit, so-called electronic eyes built into the nose, short wings with four points to carry the weapons load, and two turboshaft engines. The forward cockpit is for the pilot/fighter, with the first pilot sitting behind in the higher rear seat. In this two-seat tandem cockpit, the helicopter offers pilots excellent flight, handling characteristics and good visibility. Deliveries of the first AH-64Es to the U.S. Army began in November 2011 and mass production began in August 2012. The US Army plans to upgrade the entire fleet to the AH-64E standard and operate these helicopters until 2040.
