The first thing the enemy hears is a thunderous noise. The ground trembles and dirt and vegetation is whipped up into a blinding storm. Its huge rotor blades, missile pods, and giant optical eyes are reminiscent of a massive, deadly insect. For many, it's the last thing they ever see--the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter.
Developed during the Cold War, this incredible aircraft is now the most powerful and feared helicopter in the world. Able to dive into action at over 200 mph, it can deliver a devastating firestorm of missiles or rockets. 30mm cannon let it attack tanks, armored vehicles, and troops with uncanny accuracy. Using unique archive film, detailed reenactments, and extraordinary interviews, we fly into harm's way aboard these lethal aircraft.
