Only four Apaches out of 70 tanks
The source said, “Russia has thousands of tanks, so more than four Apaches are needed to have a strategic impact. But strategically it will be a big step forward. One of the most striking features of the state-of-the-art Apache AH64 E is its lethal missile control. It can detect more than 250 targets simultaneously from a range of more than 16 km and destroy multiple targets within seconds. Just four Apache helicopters can destroy an entire enemy force of 70 tanks in the blink of an eye.
Each helicopter is powered by the same Rolls-Royce engine and can fly at a speed of 293 km/h. It has 16 anti-tank Hellfire missiles, 76 Hydra 70mm rockets and a 30mm chain gun. Each Apache helicopter costs 70 million pounds which is about 6.95 billion rupees. It is not wrong to call this powerful helicopter a ‘flying tank’. Ukrainian pilots are ready for helicopter flying training in Britain.
