The V-22 Osprey is a tilt rotor helicopter that was manufactured by Bell Helicopter and Boeing Company. It is an aircraft that takes off just like an ordinary helicopter but flies like a plane. It is an aircraft with great range, speed, and flexibility as it is twice the speed, five times the range, and twice as high as the older aircraft that it replaced.
The V-22s maiden flight was on the 19th of March 1989 and it was introduced commercially on the 8th of December 2005. Its primary users are the US Marine Corps and the US Air Force.
The US Marines are the first to make use of the V-22 aircraft. It is said that it can efficiently save lives because it flies higher and faster than any other helicopter during its time. It is said to be the first aircraft designed to meet the needs of all four United States armed services.
The United States Marine Corps took the V-22 Osprey to replace the CH-46E and CH-53D assault helicopters. The MV-22 is a medium lift assault aircraft. It can self-deploy and can sustain land operations. It can provide combat assault transport hence it was designated as the baseline variant for the Marines.
