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.


The South Korean Army bought thirty six Boeing AH-64E helicopters that included six that were
equipped with the Longbow fire control radar. The Longbow provides the ability to detect up to
one hundred and twenty eight targets at the same time at distances up to twelve kilometers. The
ROK Army equipped two battalions with the new AH-64Es. The AH-64E is meant to replace the
ninety ageing ROKA Bell AH-1S Cobra attack helicopter that began service in 1977. The ROK
Marines have opted for the KAI (Korea Aerospace Industries) Surion.
