Apache 30mm Cannon Makes Insurgent Stew

We do have the baddest weapons the world has ever seen, but don’t take my word on it, find out for yourself!

Below we can see multiple AH-64 Apaches use 30mm and hellfire missiles to take out ISIS fighters in Afghanistan. Special Operations ground forces are talking the Apaches on the targets.

The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American four-blade, twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew.

It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft’s forward fuselage. It has four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons, typically carrying a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods.

It is a killing machine! The 30 mm cannon is awesome by itself:

At least two individuals were armed with RPG type weapons. And one of those was hiding behind the corner of the building aiming the weapon at the helicopter before the Apache was behind the building and then circled around and took the shots.

These folks purposely try to hide in groups where supposed non-combatants are gathered to try to keep from being fired upon.

It always does my military mind and heart good to see these videos. Sometimes I watch them several times to make sure I did not miss a rush.

Then there are the times when the full wrath of the AH-64 Apache can be used to reign hell upon large numbers of the enemy empowering two U.S. soldiers to neutralize 200, or even more combatants.
It’s very nice that our army has these beast of a weapon!
