Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The FACman within me cringed as the prop wash wreaked havoc. Got some nice welts and bruises in my day... bricks

Ok guys as much as it is a nifty aircraft and all what exactly is wrong with a helicopter?

The amount of money that went into developing this thing would buy a fair few transport helicopters.

If I remember correctly, once the Osprey is in horizontal flight mode, it is seriously faster than any transport choppers. And when your mission is to get there quick (as are many Marine missions), this is the bird to deliver. With the faster speed, the troop carrying ships can stand off shore farther, that is they need not get as close to the target (and it's defenses) as conventional choppers. Yes, there were many, not unexpected, bumps in development, as this tech is leading edge.  We shall soon see if it lives up to its expected mission.

Here is a link to an article regarding the V-22 in Iraq.

I suspect future reincarnations of this type aircraft, will have many of the current deficiencies addressed. If one looks back at the history of rotor aircraft, there was certainly an evolution with them as well.

Maybe it was just growing pains, but the Osprey's downwash threw equipment around the deck. The GAO notes that in one case, sailors had to hold each other to the deck as the Osprey hovered overhead


if that wasn't shown in the video...
