  An Apache AH-64E Version 6 Apache helicopter is rolled off an Air Force C-17 in South Korea.

Two dozen Boeing AH-64E Version 6, or v6, Apache helicopters have been delivered to Camp Humphreys, South Korea, completing the first-ever receipt and fielding of the advanced aircraft by U.S. forces overseas. The network-centric, multi-mission v6 is the most modern configuration of the Apache and the most advanced attack helicopter ever built — featuring enhanced sensors, software, weapon systems and more to provide pilots with unprecedented performance, connectivity and versatility.
