The AH-66B Comanche II is a fictional variant of the cancelled RAH-66 Comanche helicopter featured in Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere and is outfitted with a COFFIN flight control system.

History

After radar technology advanced beyond the Apache's ability to evade it, it was apparent that another helicopter was needed. The Comanche II's fuselage is sleek with few sharp edes or square surfaces; this dramatically decreases radar return and increases aerodynamic performance. Concealable weapons further increase its survivability.

Specifications

The Comanche II is small compared to other helicopters. Six feet shorter than the Apache and just over a foot wider than the Cobra, with smooth and angular surfaces along its entire length. Combined with a material used in the paint, and the fact that all its armaments can be concealed inside the main fuselage, help to make its signature on radar incredibly small.
