I recognize the latches on the door, Bell uses them on the V-22 and other products, too.  From the layout of the wiring harnesses, it looks like someone in the design phase tried to design for accessibility and maintainability.  That can be a challenge, I remember one design effort where the most used connector was initially placed in the most inaccessible location; the designer and I had an "intense discussion" about that that was resolved by working together to sort out all the harnesses going to the box so that every one was accessible for installation and maintenance purposes.  Since this was installed on the first two B-2As and worked without a hitch, I think we succeeded.

Those new Indonesian Apaches might be my new 2nd favorite Apache paint scheme (after the Japanese, of course).

Cheers,

And Hawaii gets a regular dump of snow each year (maybe not quite as much as in 2016)

Back to the AH-64, anyone else note the additional 'bumps' on this Israeli AH-64?  I presume they are related to the Spike NLOS missiles:
