Comment(s):

Netherlands:

Before the AH-64Ds were delivered 12 AH-64As were leased from the US Army.

United Kingdom:

Boeing defense was awarded a FMS contract on May 11, 2017 to upgrade 38 Apache AH1 helicopters to the AH-64E standard. Included in the contract are three Longbow crew trainers and associated spares.
Most likely the upgraded AH-64s will be designated Apache AH2.

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.
