The AH-64 Apache is a vehicle in Serious Sam 3: BFE.
The AH-64 Apache is an attack helicopter used by the Earth Defense Force. Unlike the UH-60 Black Hawk, It is equipped with weapon system which consisted of chain gun located under the nose of the helicopter and a rocket pod on each side.
One “normal” Apache is seen in Broken Wings, which is piloted by Garret in order to extract Sam from Cairo. However, the Apache is shot down by a Major Biomechanoid before Garret can extract Sam. By the time Sam gets to the Garret's crash site, an alien life form takes control of the Apache, transforming it into the Technopolip.
The Apache's found throughout the game suggest that more Apache's have been shot down, either in Cairo or in other parts of Earth. It seems that enough of them have been converted into Technopolips and that they've become a mainstay of Mental's forces.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- An unused Apache model with the word “covert” in it's name can be found in the game's files. It is an Apache, but with a different-looking model and a black finish. The different shape suggests that this model is from an earlier version of the Apache.
- The only Apache that appears in the game is shot down.
- Strangely, the Apache including Technopolip's doesn't have any landing wheel like it's real world counterpart.
