About the AH-64 Apache Longbow:

The AH-64 Apache was developed in the 1970’s as replacement for the AH-1 Cobra gunship helicopter, with the first production models delivered to the US Army in 1986.  The Apache has a tandem seat configuration, with pilot and gunner each provided with a complete set of controls in sit in separate armored cockpits. It’s large four-blade rotor is powered by twin turboshaft engines and has four hard points for weapons stations mounted on stub wings. An upgraded AH-64D Apache Longbow version was introduced in 1997, with advanced avionics, targeting systems and the Longbow radar dome over the main rotor. The Apache is armed with a 30mm chain gun mounted underneath the fuselage, which can be targeted via link with the gunner’s helmet. a wide array of additional weapons can be slung from its stub wing, most commonly the 70mm Hydra Rocket Pods, AGM 114 Hellfire Missiles, and/or AIM-92 Stinger Missiles.

The AH-64 first saw combat in Operation Desert Storm, where it is credit for destroying more than 250 Iraqi tanks and numerous other vehicles. It has continued to see extensive service with the US Army in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Apaches are also being used by numerous other countries, including the UK, The Netherlands, Israel, Greece, Japan, Taiwan and more. The Apache is the subject of continuous upgrade projects designed to increase performance and lethality.

NEW RELEASE: F-15 Eagle in 1/72 Scale

F-15 Eagle

The F-15 “Eagle” is an all-weather, air-superiority fighter developed for the United States Air Force in the late 1960’s. First flown in 1972, it has proven to be one of the most versatile successful fighter aircraft of all time, and will have an expected service life well into the 21st century. The twin Pratt and Whitney F100 after-burning turbofan engines gives the Eagle an outstanding thrust-to-weight ratio and top speed in excess of Mach 2. It’s large wings and twin stabilizers give it exceptional maneuverability at all altitudes. Originally configured as a single seat fighter, a two seat “Strike Eagle” variant was rolled out in the 1980’s, giving the Eagle an enhanced ground attack capability. The F-15 is armed with an internally mounted M61 20mm Vulcan Cannon and can carry a wide array of Air-to-Air missiles and/or bombs.

It also has some cool added features like deployable air brake and pivoting horizontal stabilizers.

About the M1A1 155mm Howitzer:

The M1 155mm Howitzer was one of the main “Heavy” guns used by the US Army during World War II (M1A1 specifically refers to the most common carriage type mated to the M1 Howitzer). This powerful weapon was to destroy buildings, entrenchments and moderately dug-in artillery pieces. Its high arcing fire made it ideal for neutralizing enemy in defilade positions. There were 163 battalions equipped with the 155mm Howitzer during World War II, making it the third numerous type after the lighter 105mm and 75mm howitzers. It’s ability to fire a 100 pound shell in excess of 16000 yards , plus a sustained a rate of fire eight rounds per minute, gave the 155mm howitzer a much more powerful punch than it’s smaller cousins. The effectiveness of the 155mm howitzer is often cited as a major factor in Allied victory in Europe and its modern day equivalent (M777) still provides the back bone of US artillery support to this day.
