AH-64 Apache - Hellfire AGM-65 Mayhem
Until I watched footage from our own troops in the Persian Gulf War (the first one), I would have said that being in Armor would be the LAST place I would ever want to be on a battlefield! Then I realized after watching combat footage and hearing first-hand stories, that being out in a desert with artillery raining in, you want to be behind the biggest rock you can find in the desert. In the Iraqi desert, that biggest "rock" is an M1A Abrams tank.
