Serendipitously, I came across the photo of a cross section of an AH-64 Apache rotor blade.

An Apache rotor blade starts with a HH-02 airfoil at the root to a NACA 64A006 at the tip.

The following link to airfoil tools presents wonderful details on the HH-02 airfoil.


Viewing the bottom photo of the HA-64 rotor blade, one can see the 64A006 airfoil is for the swept back tip portion of the rotor blade. The HH-02 is for the constant cord portion.
