Abstract:

The AH-64E Apache New Build AH-64E New Build is the heavy attack helicopter of the current and the future force. It is a twin engine, four blade, tandem seat attack helicopter with 30-millimeter ammunition, 2.75-inch rockets, laser Radio Frequency Hellfire missiles. AH-64E is the Armys network-centric, multi-role weapon system within the Future Modular Force FMF. It will provide the capability to simultaneously conduct or quickly transition between close combat, mobile strike, armed reconnaissance, security and vertical maneuver missions across the full spectrum of warfare from Stability and Support Operations to Major Combat Operations when required in day, night, obscured battlefield and adverse weather conditions. AH-64E will enable the Joint AirGround Maneuver Team to dominate the battle space by providing air-ground synergy through real-time Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance ISR information and responsive precision fires. AH-64E will be linked to Joint and Combined Arms AirGround Maneuver Teams via Enhanced Digital Communications, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Data Links and Joint Networking waveforms.
