Watch Real Combat Footage Of U.S. Army Apache Helicopters Identifying And Engaging Targets In Afghanistan
It’s not often that one gets to see footage of actual combat action of targets being blown out. That’s what makes footage like this so awesome. While the prowess of U.S. Army Apache helicopters is well documented, it’s exhilarating to watch the process of target acquisition and subsequent engagement, a.k.a. sending the enemy to see their maker.
The U.S. Army Apache helicopter is quite a remarkable and efficient killing machine. It has a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems, and typically carries a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods to go with a M230 30mm chain gun. It has the ability to lock on targets at day and night, in addition to a large amount of systems redundancy to improve combat survivability, which emboldens the Apache in a myriad of combat circumstances unmatched by any other enemy aircraft.
