An Apache doesn’t even have wings. It’s a helicopter. Those little stubby things are weapons pylons. It should have been called blades of the apache.

They’ve had to put all the Apache AH-64 attack helicopters *exactly* front-on (including a silhouette of one right in the actual title text), to hammer home the point that the stubby sponsors that cradle the auto-cannons are “wings” because look, ahh do you not see, wings, ahhhh.

It was renamed “Fire Birds” for US (?) distribution, so presumably common sense crashed their party shortly after initial release.

Well, technically a helicopter's blades are wings, hence the term rotary wing aircraft. I doubt the producers had that in mind though.
