The AH-64 Apache is an attack helicopter used by the Earth Defense Force. Unlike the UH-60 Black Hawk, it is equipped with a weapon system that consists of chain guns located under the nose of the helicopter and a rocket pod on each side.

The Apache is first seen in Broken Wings, which is piloted by Garret in order to extract Sam from Cairo. However, the Apache was shot down by a Major Bio-mechanoid before Garret could extract Sam. By the time Sam got to the crash site, an alien life form takes control of the Apache, which transforms it into the Technopolip.

The Apache's found throughout the game suggested that more Apache's had been shot down, either in Cairo or on other parts of Earth. It seems that enough of them had been converted into Technopolips and that they had 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 the ones the Technopolip uses, doesn't have any landing wheels like its real world counterpart.
