    Co-worker sent me this:

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/japan/ah-64d.htm

    “The Japan Defense Agency (JDA) selected Fuji Heavy Industries to produce the AH-64D Apache Longbow with unique requirements for Japan. Fuji Heavy Industries was appointed as the prime contractor for the licensed manufacture of Boeing AH-64D attack helicopter for JGSDF in 2002. And T700, 701 C engines of GE Aircraft Engine Company were selected to AH-64D battle helicopter of JGSDF. FHI is producing the aircraft under license from Boeing, which is supporting systems integration and aircraft production. FHI and The Boeing Company teamed for the production of the aircraft.”

    on a side note, Fuji Heavy Industries owns Subaru, so for us Subaru owners, we can say we drive a car made by a company that makes Apaches :cool:
