Unveiled in 2012 and shown for the first-time officially in dynamic flight at MSPO 2013, the ILX-27 has been intended to support all military components in special operations under adverse conditions, such as mountainous terrain and built-up/urban areas. This UAV helicopter is a means of providing air support much safer than manned aircraft.

Primarily intended to support operations involving special forces personnel in urban areas and mountains, the ILX-27 will have a maximum take-off weight of about 1,100kg (2,420lb), including a 300kg payload. Other applications could include reconnaissance, cargo transport, personnel evacuation, infrastructure monitoring and border patrol, while armaments such as rocket pods could also be added.

With a fuselage length of 7.74m (25.4ft), three-blade main rotor and shrouded five-blade tail rotor, the unmanned air system will have a maximum cruise speed of 116kt (215km/h), a service ceiling of 13,900ft (4,240m) and a range of ~450km.
