Apache Helicopter Display at Royal International Air Tattoo 2014

An Army Air Corps Apache takes part in a dramatic display at the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, one of the biggest international Airshows in the world.

 

The Apache attack helicopter can operate in all weathers, day or night and detect, classify and prioritise up to 256 potential targets in a matter of seconds. It carries a mix of weapons including rockets, Hellfire missiles and a 30mm chain gun, as well as a state of the art fully integrated defensive aid suite.

 

In addition to the distinctive Longbow radar located above the rotor blades, this aircraft is equipped with a day TV system, thermal imaging sight and direct view optics.
