It cost about 14 million to 16million dollars U.S.
From Boeing, off the shelf about $12m. You will however need to demonstrate that you are a government, friendly to the USA before the sale will be approved.
Around 3 hours, (5 max) at 200 MPH (cruise speed). Flight time will vary depending on the weight, conditions, how many external fuel tanks are on it, and the model. On long mi…ssions, special tankers will drive to a certain location to refuel the apache. Remember, they still need the fuel to make it back home.
it was invented to make a stealthy and fast attacking weapon. also it could be used for scout or recon missions. ----------------------------------- The AH-64 was designed… first and foremost as a tank killer. It was designed during the Cold War where it would have been used to destroy massed Soviet tank divisions pouring through the Fulda Gap. Everything else it does was secoondary to that primary purpose
Although the Apache helicopter was invented by McDonnell Douglas, it was built by boeing.
The Apache may be the best "attack" helicopter but the Navy MH 60 S is the most diverse platform and best utility helicopter in the world.
The AH-64 is an attack helicopter, with the primary intent being to identify and destroy enemy armour. With the capabilities of the newer Longbow series, it can also serve in …a hunter/scout role.
what is the meaning of Apache helicopter
Capacity can mean a lot of things with a helicopter. If you mean crew capacity? It's 2 (pilot and gunner) technically 4 as there are emergency seating available on the outsi…de of the chopper just to the side of the pilot on the wing stubs however this has only (to the best of my knowlage) been used once in afgahnistan by a British Pilot. Capacity on a helicopter is generally a mixture of fuel and ordanance. The more fuel you carry the less you can theoretically lift-off with. With a full fuel load the maximum take off weight is 23,000 lbs ( taken from wikipedia)
Apache helicoptor'r model is designed by a Bangladeshi.
The Hughes M230 Chain Gun, 30mm automatic cannon. Each round contains 21.5 g (0.76 oz) of explosive charge sealed in a shaped-charge liner. The liner collapses into an arm…or-piercing jet of metal that is capable of penetrating more than 2 inches of armour. Additionally, the shell is also designed to fragment upon impact. The lethal radius against unprotected, standing targets is about 10 ft (3.0 m) under optimum conditions.
the apache helicopter got it's name from the apache footballteam from Gonzales,tx.
