That is very well possible. Other helicopters in the Iraqi inventory are Bell JetRangers (YI-230 series) and Mil 17s (YI-260 series).

BTW, this particular helicopter was air tested as D-HCBU[2]. Did the plate show EC135 or EC635?

I presume they are fully assembled and test flown at donauworth then disassembled and shipped out to Iraqi then? Anyone confirm?

How many have the Iraqis got on order?

This helicopter has now turned up here in South Africa. The serial number plate definately indicates Iraqi serial number YI-293. If anybody wants a photograph just send me an e-mail and I'll send it on with pleasure.
