Academy 1:72 Scale US Army AH-64D Block II "Late Version" - ACA-12551

The US Army initiated the Advanced Attack Helicopter program in 1972 after cancellation of the previous replacement for AH-1 Cobra, the Lockheed AH-56 Cheyenne. The Hughes YAH-64 was selected for production out of that competition and the Apache has served since 1986. In order to increase the Apache's lethality and survivability, an upgrade program was developed to integrate the APG-78 Longbow millimetre-wave radar on the aircraft to allow the Apache to engage multiple targets with the radar-guided Hellfire missile without breaking cover.

Features: Nice cockpits. Multi-Function Displays (MFD) in front and rear cockpits. -Asymmetrical extended forward avionics bays (EFAB). Choice of rear bay access doors for early/late production airframes. Choice of early/late production TADS/PNVS sensors on nose. One-piece main rotor w/blades. 8 x AGM-114 Hellfires on two quad-rail launchers. 2 x Hydra 70 rocket pods.

This kit is a detailed scale model for hobbyists. Glue and paint sold separately. Contains small parts. Actual product may vary slightly from the pictures shown.
