Shahed 274

The Shahed 274 is a locally designed light helicopter with a combination of components of several helicopter-types, mainly the Bell 206. Its development was reportedly initiated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), being sponsored by the Institute of Industrial Research and Development. Was said to have been first flown in 1997 and entered service with the IRGC on 16 September 1999. However, it was not publically displayed until 30 December 2000 in Tehran, and was also displayed during an airshow at Kish Island during 2002. Planned production was for 20 units by 2004, but the status as of 2008 was uncertain.
