You are saying not to go to war with a country that brandishes the Apache, I would disagree.
Block III includes increasing digitisation, the joint tactical radio system, enhanced engines and drive systems, capability to control UAVs and new composite rotor blade. The new blades, which successfully completed flight testing in May 2004, increase the Apache's cruise speed, climb rate and payload capability. The block III system development and demonstration (SDD) contract was awarded to Boeing in July 2006. First flight of the Apache Block III was in July 2008. The US Army plans to upgrade all its Apache fleet to block III standard.
Err have a look who invented , researched and develop the high speed blades..
What advantages does the ah have in its current area of operations, that the a10 does not have ?
vtol pretty pointless when you own the airbase
