ACA12268 1:48 Academy AH-64D Longbow Apache
The most easily observable difference between the "A" and "D" versions are the larger avionics bays on both sides of the nose. These larger housings provide the room for much more sophisticated anvigation, communication and weapons systems.
The Longbow is equipped with highly advanced electronic systems that can rapidly detect, classify, prioritize and engage multiple ground or airborne targets through battlefield haze and under almost all weather conditions. Not as easily observable are the more powerful-701C engines that power the Longbow "C" and "D" versions and enable it to lift heavier weapons and or fuel loads.
Unlike most helicopters the Longbow has been designed to be self-deployable over long distances by means of precision world-wide navigation instrumentation and long-range communications capability.
Longbow is regarded as a true Combined Arms force multiplier able to defeat future battlefield threats well into the 21st century.
