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

Cheers,

Not an accessory I can see the Indonesians bothering with.

High in the Owen Stanleys they get snow on the equator...

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

Random idea:  Iranian AH-64 in scheme similar to this:

All hail the God of Frustration!!!

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:

Id mention it at work if anyone there was remotely interested in aviation or attack helicopters.

I love how Boeing are calling it the AH-64E and presenting it as just a continuation of the
Apache.
 ;D

The friggin' thing has less in common with a current AH-64 than the Super Bug has with
a legacy Hornet.

Could it be Boeing are just playing to the current administrations apparent preference for evolved verses new designs?

A high speed Apache makes me think the US Army is changing its thoughts on attack helicopter tactics. The past tactics involved pop up attacks from behind cover with high speed not required. Is this a switch to more of an old Soviet style with diving attacks more like an aircraft?

Nope, the it's just a derivative game is an old one.

Sometimes it works. Like how the A-7 Corsair II was a "derivative" of the F-8 Crusader.

Not the same thing at all, the Super Bug is one of the best examples, it's
a new aircraft yet still designated as an F-18.

That's the game, make major changes yet claim it's still the same basic
aircraft. It's been done in the commercial aviation arena for yonks, it's a
way around having to go through the new design certification process.
The current 747-8 has very little left in common with the original 747.

I thought AH-64E is just an upgraded Apache (even to the point that D's will be rebuilt to E standard) and AH-64F would be the totally not all-new compound helicopter? ???
