I was disappointed. The documentary states that the mission of the Apache attack helicopter is ground support. Well, that's the mission of the A-10 Warthog. There was no mention of the A-10 Warthog. Also, there was no mention of the differences in capability between the two aircraft.

The Apaches flew at an altitude of 100 feet or less to avoid detection by ground radar stations. In the Iraqi desert, there is no jungle canopy to conceal the Apache. There is no discussion of the vulnerability of the Apache to RPG (Rocket-Propelled Grenade) fire.

I would rate Apache Warrior at no more than 2.0 stars.
