This thesis in an assessment of attack helicopter gunnery training and the adequacy of that training as the Military fields the AH-64D Longbow attack helicopter beginning in 1997. The issue confronted by this research study is both institutional and device gunnery training. This thesis is supported by a summary of the existing helicopter gunnery training method and includes a history of the development of the attack helicopter, along with the expectations of Aeronautics Branch in Force XXI. Finally, a contrast of capabilities is conducted between the AH-64A and the AH-64D. The thesis draws numerous conclusions. First, the existing helicopter gunnery training method is not acceptable for the Longbow. Second, the gunnery facilities is insufficient to help leaders, analyze trends, and incorporate lessons found out. Third, the training aids and simulators offered to the Longbow device leader will likely be inadequate. Most of the analysis in this thesis focuses on the human dimension of attack helicopter work. Military aviators will remain to employ helicopters in combat with the foreseeable future; therefore, training must focus on preparing them for that combat and the unpredictability that will confront them. By focusing on technology, the significance of human strengths and weaknesses may be ignored.
