Host Bob Edwards talks with Paul Beaver of Jane's Defense Weekly about the Apache attack helicopters which this week are expected to fly missions into Kosovo. The Apache, a heavily-armed helicopter that flies at tree-top level, is effective against tanks and ground troops but is vulnerable to ground fire. Supplementing the Apaches will be battle tanks and Bradley Infantry Fighting vehicles.
