How do you arm an Apache attack helicopter?

Forces News joined 653 Squadron on Exercise Grey Eagle as they armed the Apache Mark 1 for live-firing.

The British Army's Apache attack helicopter is lethal, and comes with a multitude of weapons.

Along with 16 Hellfire missiles, the helicopter also has 76 Hydra 70 rockets and 1,200 30mm cannon rounds.

But, all that weaponry is not much good if the helicopter hasn't been 'armed up' first.
