Comment(s):

United States:

The US Army originally operated the AH-64A. The AH-64D fleet consists of new build aircraft and upgraded AH-64A models. The same applies for the AH-64E known as Guardian which comprises new built helicopters as well as upgraded AH-64Ds.

Numbers for the AH-64E will be updated once information has been validated. Retrofits are considered as new aircraft in the report.
