. . . posted in another thread got me looking at other pictures of this really lethal-looking aircraft. What caught my eye was that there appear to be two tail rotors. I checked to be sure there were not two aircraft then went searching.
My question is this: At a glance it appears to be coaxial, counter-rotating tail rotors but then all the pictures show the two sets of blades at the same angle. And not at 90o to each other, I might add.

See what I mean?
So, any Apache troops out there who can explain this? Are the two sets of blades set at that angle on the hub?
Also, back to the head-on shot: What are those weathervane looking objects mounted off each engine?
