Description

Fly the most fearsome helicopter to ever grace the skies - the AH-64 Apache. The core gameplay is simulator oriented featuring missions in 4 distinct combat theatres. Enemy threats are fully featured and include a myriad of Russian tanks, anti-aircraft systems, surface to air missiles, and aircraft. For novice users there is an 'arcade' flight model with simplified controls and flight mechanics, in addition to a training mode.

Apache originally came out for DOS in 1995 and was later upgraded to Windows 9x in 1996, featuring a different box and a few minor in-game changes.
