Military awaits delivery of Apache attack helicopters -
The 61 pilots who were sent to the US to be instructed on how to fly the helicopters have completed their training, a military source said
The military is expected to receive six Apache attack helicopters from the US early next month, a military source said on Thursday.

The six AH-64Es will be the first batch of an order of 30 of the advanced US attack helicopters that Taiwan bought for more than US$2 billion. The last batch should be delivered next year, the source said.


But still no big news on the UH60 program.

Quoting STT757 (Reply 3):

Just Helfires.IIRC the original congressional notification only talked about the anti armor AGM114L. I suppose they could get the blast version the USMC have but thats laser guided. Is that integrated into the Apache Longbow- I would think pre Longbow variants could laser designate for their own Hellfires) or would they ave to use those on the AH1W?
