It has a much more powerful engine requiring software mods to stop the gearing from breaking: the avionics suite, *ahem*, is not quite the same as the US version, and finally, the training was contracted out to civvies. The AAC guys I've spoken to love it.
Did someone forget they were pretending to be stupid?
the only problem I have seen is that EVERY Brit apache seems to have the Longobow fitted.....when you only need one per
( I think) 6 helicopters....that was maybe a bit of a waste of money.
