Another Longbow?

1510 longbowAt the battle of Crecy, August 26, 1346, British longbowmen determined the English victory. English archers overwhelmed Genoese crossbowmen employed by the French, firing five shafts to every one. Repeated charges by French heavy cavalry were decimated by showers of English arrows. Today, another Longbow may provide a like equalizer in the face of the mass Soviet tank armies in Eastern Europe… the AH-64 Apache.
