WAH-64 Apache Longbow
A British Army Air Corps WAH-64D Apache Longbow fires its 30mm chain gunduring an exercise mission launched from HMS Ocean, a Royal Navy carrier..
The British variant of the Apache, designated as the AH Mk1, is based around the AH-64D Longbow airframe but with different engines, rotors and a number of different avionics fitments. British Apaches have been certified for operations based on aircraft carriers and undertook a number of carrier-based sorties during NATO operations against Libya in 2011.
