IRGC Helicopters
#1
Thread to discuss IRGC helicopter fleet and development.

The IRGC received 3 new Shahed 278 helicopters and 1 new Shahed 285 helicopter.



Quote:According to Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Qasem Taqizadeh سرتيپ قاسم تقي زاده, the helicopters have been designed and manufactured in cooperation with local knowledge-based companies, universities, research centers, and the IRGC’s scientific and technological centers.

Shahed-278 is a 5-seat helicopter suitable for diverse purposes, such as patrol and reconnaissance missions, carrying commanders, escorting and supporting the ground forces, video recording, training courses, air medical service, or even flying as an air taxi, the commander said.

He noted that Shahed-278, with military and civilian utility, is the first Iranian helicopter to have received a type certificate after meeting all international standards.

Type certificate is issued to signify the airworthiness of an aircraft manufacturing design or type.

The other model, Shahed-285, is a single-seat chopper used for solo flights and close combats, the general said, adding that the two copters have been manufactured on a same platform.

Taqizadeh said the helicopters’ mechanical, hydraulic and avionics systems and their fuselages have been developed with indigenous technologies, and the costs of maintenance and repair have been greatly reduced.

He went on to say that Iran is now among a handful of countries with the technical know-how to design and make helicopters.

Iran has most powerful helicopters in the ME: Army Aviation commander

Quote:Second Brigadier General Yousef Ghorbani said, “Security exists in all over the country and no enemy dares to enter Iran, because our armed forces are ready to do what the Supreme Leader orders”.

Noting that Iran’s power in air, ground, maritime and deterrence areas is “unique”, the official said, “Today Iran has the most powerful helicopters in the Middle East”.

That's a bold claim...

A few weeks/months ago they announced good news in the field of helicopter engines, so I think they are making good progress for such engines and they will show us what they are talking about soon.
