The AH-64E Apache Guardian was originally designated AH-64D Block III in 2012 but because of
its advanced capabilities compared to previous variants it was renamed. Everything about the AH-
64E is bigger and better or improved when compared to earlier variants. A large number of
improvements are meant to protect the crew from guns up to 27 mm rounds as well as crash
resistant seats. Equipped with new sensors, avionics and night operation capabilities the AH-64E
also has the ability to control UAVs.

Boeing AH-64E Apache Guardian 812/10012 c/nTW012 Bu.No 11-00012 was accepted by the
Taiwan Army December 13, 2013. The ROCA received thirty AH-64Es that would equip two
squadrons of the 601st Air Cavalry Brigade and stationed at Taoyuan’s Longtan District in
northern Taiwan. The purpose of the northern location is to defend against any land operations
in that area. One AH-64E crashed while training leaving twenty nine serviceable. Their AN/APG-
78 Longbow fire-control target acquisition radar gives the helicopter day/night, all-weather, 360°
search capabilities up to 8 km.
