On March 17, 2010 the United States Secretary of Defense announced the U.S presence in Iraq would be changed from ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ to ‘Operation New Dawn’ effective September 1, 2010. The U.S. would also begin a withdrawal of large portions of its force from Iraq and move them to Kuwait. This would begin the handover of the defense of Iraq to the Iraqi troops that had been trained by NATO forces. Along with trucks and CH-47 Chinooks, AH-64 Apache Gun-ships would provide aerial protection against any attacks.Die-cast metal body

Originally developed by Hughes Helicopters in the 1970s as a replacement for the Bell AH-1 Cobra, the Apache is now built by Boeing. The YAH-64 prototype was first flown on September 30, 1975, with the production model entering service in 1986. The AH-64 has served in conflicts in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. Over 2,000 have been produced to date in several variants.
