And finally, the Shahed 285, another Jet Ranger-based type but this time as a small armed helo:



Thanks for posting, but see my post (and Commander31's) further up. The Airliners.net photo is of the Zafar 300 prototype, not the Shahed 285.

A very interesting article which explains a lot about these and other helos:

Now THAT is weird. They used to be in MY post. Then I tried to edit it to remove the first (ill-labeled) photograph and then there were NO ATTACHMENTS LISTED at the bottom of the edit box!!! And now they're in YOURS!!!

Waking up at 4:00 in the morning to hear the heater controls being toggled by the annoying house ghosts (yes, my house is haunted, seriously) and my mom jumping out of bed yelling at thin air. The second was waking up at 7:00 by the house alarm going off for no particular reason.

By the way, nice article and images Steph!

Okay, this time I hope the attachments REMAIN within MY post! Here is a different variant designated Shahed 285C, although it's hard to tell whether it's a real prototype or only a mockup for a show. As I don't read or speak the Persian language, that's all I can say about it right now!!! no

If the Shahed 285 C, or AH-85 as it was designated on this exhibition was a
real one or just a mock-up, I don't know, but at least the type itself already flew,
albeit with a different weapons fit http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?157780-Iranian-attack-helicopter-Shahed-285/page13

Can someone identify the type of missile ?

From here it looks like a ChineseC-704 cruise missile. A dummy one probably.
