The Apache has become an important and valued air support asset since its introduction in Afghanistan in 2006. It is brimmed with hi-tech weapon, sight and guidance systems which make it a very formidable weapon. One of its more unique features is the monocle that is built into the pilot's helmet, it displays important information, and stays in the pilot's field of vision no matter which way they move their head.
