Army Air Corps Apache

For well over a decade, the spearhead of Army Air Corps striking power has been the Apache AH1, built for British service by what is now AgustaWestland at Yeovil. This mighty 'tank-killing' attack helicopter, which won its US Army spurs in the first Gulf War, has seen extensive Army Air Corps use in combat theatres, specifically Afghanistan and Libya. Apaches from two operational regiments based at Wattisham in Suffolk form part of 16 Air Assault Brigade, a potent 'rapid response' unit that combines the employment of airborne forces and attack helicopters. 653 Squadron from Wattisham's 3 Regiment provides the Apache display crew for 2014.
