Mechanics, the Apache helicopter has many complicated computerized parts.
In the Jul 21 Apache newsletter, issue 96, it states that the mast mounted assembly (MMA) electronically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM), NSN 1220-01-605-5217, requires reprogramming after specific fire control radar (FCR) maintenance tasks are accomplished.
