Khowst Province, Afghanistan – The AH-64 Apache helicopter is one of the most feared aircraft in the skies over Afghanistan. The Apache was designed as an anti-armor attack helicopter that was to replace AH-1 Cobra. It first saw service in April 1986 and still supports Soldiers on the ground 27 years later.

The Apache is an amazing machine and extremely capable in a close air support role. The Apache, as amazing as it is, needs Soldiers to get it into the air and keep it there covering the ground operations in Afghanistan.
