Hi E-rok,


Here's some of the equipment we sold to Iraq in the 1980's (note the circumstances of the sales):



(31) Bell-214ST Helicopter 1985 1987-88 (31) Originally part of order for 45 for civilian use but taken over by Air Force

30 Hughes-300/TH-55 Light helicopter 1983 1984 (30) Officially bought for civilian use, but taken over by Air Force; 300C version


30 MD-500MD Defender Light helicopter 1983 1983 (30)


26 MD-530F Light helicopter 1985 1985-86 (26) Officially bought for civilian use, but taken over by Air Force



All but the Bell 214 are essentially traffic choppers. The Bell is commonly used as lifeflight ship.


Note: None of the aircraft were sent equipped with any military arsenal. All were sent for civilian use.

Next.

Tim
