The United States Army uses different helicopters to achieve different goals. One of the many missions which need to be accomplished includes missions of attack on enemy facilities and against enemy aircraft. The first helicopter the US Army turns to for these kinds of missions is the Apache Longbow. Serving as a pilot, weapons officer or ground support for this helicopter allow the US Army to have maximum attack capabilities in the face of warfare.
Long Range Capabilities
The reason why the Apache Longbow is so enviable as an attack helicopter is because it has the ability to intercept and track targets from miles away in full color rather than in black and white or in green. There are no restrictions on weather since this helicopter has the ability to fly in any weather conditions as well as the ability to be fully functional even in the dead of night. This is due to the ability of the pilots to use infrared and radar technology to see with.
Another reason why the Apache Longbow is a great attack helicopter is because it has the ability to deliver an array of weapons to a target. The use of Sidewinder and Hellfire missiles in conjunction with the main guns creates firepower no enemy wants to stand against. This is the kind of helicopter you would like to work on and with.
