The AH-64 Apache is an US military attack helicopter used by the Earth Defense Force.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Apache is one of two helicopters that were used by the Earth Defense Force during the Mental War. Unlike the UH-60 Black Hawk, the Apache is equipped with a weapon system that consists of chain guns located under the nose of the helicopter and two rocket pods, one on each side.
The Apache's found throughout the game suggest that more Apache's have been shot down, either in Cairo or on other parts of Earth. It seems that enough of them have been converted into Technopolips and that they had become a mainstay of Mental's forces.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Apache is first seen in Broken Wings, which is piloted by Garret to extract Sam from Cairo. However, the Apache is shot down by a Major Bio-mechanoid before Garret canextract Sam. By the time Sam gets to the crash site, an alien life form takes control of the Apache, which transforms it into a Technopolip.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- An unused Apache model with the word “covert” in its name can be found in the game's files. It is an Apache, but with a different-looking model and a black finish. The different shape suggests that this model is from an earlier version of the Apache.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The only Apache that appears in the game is shot down.
- The Apache helicopters that appear in-game don't appear to have landing gear.
