Marginally Dissatisfied Mike: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Helicopter parenting from an Apache Longbow would be kind of cool. "Load the 50 millimeter!"

Load the 50 millimeter what?

Guns: 1× 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 Chain Gun with 1,200 rounds as part of the Area Weapon Subsystem
Hardpoints: Four pylon stations on the stub wings. Longbows also have a station on each wingtip for an AIM-92 ATAS twin missile pack.
Rockets: Hydra 70 70 mm, and CRV7 70 mm air-to-ground rockets
Missiles: Typically AGM-114 Hellfire variants; AIM-92 Stinger may also be carried.
