They are called Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFT). These tanks are manufactured by the AIF and increase the aircraft's amount of internal fuel by 50%. Their purpose is to significantly prolong the aircraft's flight range and ability to remain in the air.

Nice, really nice!

Question? Are the AH-64's and AH-1A's older models or kits bought from the U.S.?

The last models of AH-64 and AH-1 which Israel bought from the U.S. were AH-64D Apache 'Longbow' and AH-1W Apache 'Super Cobra'.

I doubt that you found a suitable pair for comparing.

Since they're (the fuel tanks) below the aircraft, wouldnt the aircraft be more prone to explode from flak or any other projectiles shot at it?
