This is one of the original AH-64A's lent to the Klu  by the US Army pending delivery of their 30 new build AH-64D's.  Originally the plan was to have the D models delivered without the APG-78 mast mounted radar, and to buy some 6 or so sets which would be role-fitted to aircraft depending on need.  I believe the Dutch have since decided to equip all 30 with the APG-78.  To be a Longbow Apache, the APG-78 needs to be fitted, otherwise it's just an AH-64D.  This text provided by Drewe Manton
