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 HV-22A will provide long range combat search and rescue, delivery and retrieval of special warfare teams along with fleet logistic support transport. The US Navy plans call for procurement of up to 48/49 HV-22s. In early 2015 the US Navy made public its intention to buy 44 V-22 aircraft of a new model.
