Hi,

the Florida-Based Load Ranger planned to develope a stripped-down
derivative of the Bell 206 JetRanger as agricultural helicopter.

A prototype was actually completed (N200LR) and this first flew in April 1997. Further development was halted and the aircraft was sadly lost in a fatal crash in June 2005.

Includes up to 6 passengers for the Load Ranger 2000. Seems improbable given the fuselage hopper size ::)

"The military version was to have been armed with two pylons (Stub wings?) each having two weapon suspension points."

Additionally, Jet Rangers are hard pressed to get airborne with 5 people onboard!
