Description: The V-22 Osprey is a multi-mission, tilt-rotor aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability. It performs VTOL missions as effective as a conventional helicopter while also having the long range cruise abilities of a twin-turboprop aircraft.
The V-22 features a tilt-rotor mounted on each wing tip with its corresponding engine/transmission nacelle. It can operate as a helicopter for takeoff and landing operations and otherwise required. Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90-degree for horizontal flight, converting the V-22 to a high-speed airplane. The V-22's wing rotates for compact storage aboard ships.
The V-22 will carry cargo externally and internally and will be armed with two 12.7mm guns. For improved survivability the V-22 includes cross-coupled transmissions so either engine can power the rotors if one engine fails.
The CV-22A will conduct long range special operations missions. The US Air Force plans to purchase up to 50 CV-22s through 2017 with an initial operational capability (IOC) planned for 2009. The first operational CV-22 will be handed over to the US Air Force December 2006 at Hurlburt Field, Florida.
According to 2004 official reports, the USMC MV-22 initial operational capability (IOC) will be delayed from September 2004 to March 2007, and the US Air Force CV-22 is expected to complete its initial operational test and evaluation in September 2007 (June 2006 originally).
Bell-Boeing joint program office received a $850 million acquisition contract for long lead effort and materials associated with the manufacture and delivery of 11 fiscal year 2006 Lot 10 low rate initial production (LRIP) V-22 aircraft January 24, 2005. Lot 10 includes 9 MV-22 for the Marine Corps and two CV-22s for the Air Force.
In February 2005, the US Air Force received its third CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor test aircraft at Edwards Air Force Base, California. These three aircraft were planned to undergo operational testing beginning in summer 2006. CV-22s will be modified to perform as Special Operations Command aircraft through night flying, low altitude operations in bad weather, and research and rescue (SAR).
On 27 December 2005, Bell-Boeing Joint Program Office was awarded a $1.06 billion contract by the US Navy for procurement of 14 fiscal year 2007 Lot 11 MV-22 and 2 Lot 11 CV-22 aircraft. The 16 V-22 aircraft were expected to be delivered before September 2009.
In March 2006 the United States Air Force took delivery of the first operational CV-22 Block 10 aircraft paving the way for an initial operational capability in 2009. As of 2006 the US Air Force plans to procure up to 50 CV-22 Ospreys to be delivered to the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) by 2017.
