Who was your great Uncle?

I was able to hear directly from Major General Ed Browne today - he is 87 and came to speak to my Rotary Club as he was instrumental in getting the Apache built. He said the name came as a result of helicopters being named after Native American tribes and this one in particular was because of Geronimo - leader of the Apache tribe - I believe he was denied release maybe 3 times and before he died he said he should have fought to the death. This reflected the spirit of the Apache people and the spirit of the helicopter. And so the Name Apache was adopted.

The Apache got its name because my Great Uncle assisted with the design of this helicopter. We were from Gonzales, Texas and the high school mascot was the 'Apache'. Several of the engineers got to drop a name in the hat to what they thought it should be named.....

Co-pilot gunner does not sit in the back. Pilot sits in the back seat. FYI. (Second paragraph error) Also, if you are reading this to get more info on what it is composed of....its a good baseline, however, very very very outdated to what todays AH-64D is. I stopped reading the article because of this. Thanks for the read.

Long shot, does anyone know where I can obtain a DVD of a 1980s doco called "The Chopper"? I have no idea who produced it, exact year, or who the English-sounding narrator is. It includes interviews with Hanna Reitsch and Bart Kelley (coworker of Arthur Young at Bell), and other techs and pilots, as well as footage of the prototype NOTAR, Apache, Sikorsky ABC and the XV-15 amongst others.

...oh - "Mr Dibya" ... GFY. seriously...try posting to a website for idiots...like NPR.org or the DNC. BTW...forwarding you string to LEO.


Snoop, e-mail, 01.10.2010 17:33

FYI - the M230 fires a 30mm projectile at approx 2600fps - roughly the same as a .30cal rifle bullet. Cyclic rate comperable to the M-16/M4 weapon family. The armor plate is made out of a space-age material called, "Nunya" ... as in "nunya bidness..." And no, those tangos probably never heard the rounds coming...wah.

Is it possible to get more information on the mission avionics of the apache ?


nasser, e-mail, 16.06.2008 22:45

hi
how about the thickness of the protective armor(ceramic? and composite?) of apache AH-64?


John Stuart, e-mail, 28.05.2008 22:33

I saw a film clip of a chopper firing at night from 2 miles away at a group of terrs which I sent to my son. His comments were they must have heared the firing and I said no. Despute. To settle I need to know what the speed of cannon shell would be and if the M230 30 mm round travels faster than sound. If it does then the terrs never new what hit them. Your comments and help on this one would be appreciated.

The prototypes had USAAF no 74-22248 and 22249 not 73-

Hi,

The name Apache comes from the tradition of US Army to name its aircraft with Native American Tribe names. For example the OH-6 Cayuse, the CH-47 Chinook, and recently the UH-72A Lakota.

with regards

Just to settle an argument how did the name Apache come to be the name of this particular helicopter? Thanks...Roger Ellerman
