Eagle Dynamics Is Developing A Boeing AH–64D Apache Attack Helicopter For Their High–Fidelity Digital Combat Simulator (D.C.S.).
The Boeing AH–64 Apache line of attack helicopters served a co-primary instrument, along with the Fairchild A–10 “Warthog” Thunderbolt II, of Close Air Support (C.A.S.) for infantry ground troop(s) support during recent wars and conflicts. While they had their problems dealing with the sand, they provided invaluable support.
The block version of the Boeing AH–64D (AH–64D) nor its release date has been disclosed by Eagle Dyamics, the producers and developers of Digital Combat Simulator (D.C.S.).

According to The Boeing Company, there are over one-thousand and one-hundred (1,100+) AH–64 Apaches deployed in over sixteen (16) countries.
In 2017, the United States (U.S.) Department Of Defense (D.O.D.) awarded The Boeing Company a five-year (5y) $3.4 Billion United States Dollars (U.S.D.) contract to “remanufacture” AH–64E Apache attack helicopters, while also manufacturing twenty-four (24) new AH–64E‘s in the same contract (American Machinist, Robert Brooks; March 20, 2017).
