V-22 Osprey USMC Grey 1/48 Scale Model HV222TR by Toys & Models


"Developed and built jointly by Bell Helicopter Textron and Boeing Helicopters, the V-22 Osprey is a joint service, multi-mission, military tilt rotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) and short takeoff and landing capability (STOL). It is designed to perform missions like a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft. The initial operators are the U.S. Marine Corps and United States Air Force. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) classifies the Osprey as a model of powered lift aircraft. The V-22 first flew on March 18, 1989. The V-22 Osprey is twice as fast as a helicopter and has much longer range resulting in greater mission versatility than a helicopter. The V-22 Osprey’s multi-mission capability provides: amphibious assault, combat support, long-range special ops infiltration and exfiltration, transport, search and rescue, medevac, and, in the future, tanker capability. The V-22 Osprey aircraft can transport 24 combat troops or up to 20,000 pounds of internal or external cargo using its medium lift and vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. Boeing V-22 meets U.S. Navy requirements for combat search and rescue, fleet logistics support, and special warfare support and matches the U.S. Special Operations Command's requirement for a high-speed, long-range, vertical lift aircraft. It can be stored aboard an aircraft carrier because the rotors can fold and the wing rotate. The Osprey has air-to-air refueling capability, the cornerstone of the ability to self-deploy. "
