10 reapers of death

War! We can do without it, but mankind has proven that it can’t do without going to war every now and then. Nevertheless, every country is in the continuous race and process of upgrading their own power, and all want and need to be ready to meet any eventuality. We have collected the most dangerous and deadly military machines from round the world, lets start them from number 10.

10- Longbow Apache

The Apache Longbow is an improved and upgraded version of the AH-64A. With increased survivability, better bad-weather performance, avionics and weapons, the Longbow is the most sophisitcated attack helicopter in service.
