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 US Navy CMV-22B tiltrotor aircraft is a derivative of the US Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey and has been designed as the replacement for the C-2 Greyhound introduced in the 1960s. The modified CMV-22B has 200 nautical miles extra range to perform carrier onboard delivery (COD) missions carrying personnel, supplies and weapons. The US Navy expects to procure 44 CMV-22Bs to replace 35 C-2 aircraft beginning in 2021.
