It has been my experience that Apache helicopters are frequently in the skies above Houston, and if memory serves the 30mm canon on the front is always present.
I would be more surprised to NOT see the cannon mounted on an Apache, it is a permanent part of the airframe, more or less. Its movements are controlled hydraulically, and not something that can just be taken off when not in use. It is ever bit as part of the aircraft as the engine, transmission, and rotor systems.
