These statistics are for the basic AH-64D airframe; a variety of external stors can be carried.
For example, a typical load of 8 AGM-114 Hellfires and 2 19-tube 2.75" rocket pods is equivalent in game stats to:
• HATM (fire arc FF) w 8 missiles, 2 MRP/18s (fire arc FF) w 36 rockets
Players are encouraged to fit other loads to the basic Longbow Apache stats presented.
