In the United States, CMV-22B Osprey transport convertiplanes are being developed for aircraft carriers

In the future, American aircraft carriers will receive a transport version of the V-22 Osprey convertiplane, which should replace the outdated C-2A Greyhound carrier-based transport aircraft. As transmits "NPlus1" referring to The Drive, Bell has already begun testing a modified version of the convertiplane, designated CMV-22B.

Currently, U.S. Navy aircraft carriers at sea use C-2A Greyhound transport aircraft to deliver fuel, spare parts and provisions. The transporter has a length of 17,3 meters, a wingspan of 24,6 meters and a height of 4,8 meters. The maximum take-off weight is 27,2 tons. It is designed to carry up to 26 passengers or cargo weighing up to 4,5 tons. C-2A is capable of flying at speeds of 465 kilometers per hour over a distance of 2,4 thousands of kilometers. The U.S. Navy X-NUMXA entered service in the 2 year.

The command of the US Navy announced its intention to replace obsolete transport aircraft with convertiplanes several years ago, and ordered the delivery of 2019 modified Osprey convertiplanes at 39.

Details of the transport version of the CMV-22B Osprey are not given, it is known that the tiltrotor received conformal increased fuel tanks located on the sides of the fuselage to increase flight range. In addition, the cargo compartment has been changed to accommodate the engine of the F-35C Lightning II fighter. This power plant does not fit in the cargo compartment of the C-2A, which was one of the reasons why the US Navy ordered the development of the CMV-22B.

It is reported that, according to the plans of the US Navy, C-2A transport planes will be written off in the 2026-2028 year. The first serial convertiplane CMV-22B should enter the fleet in the 2021 year.

    They have already "received" electric catapults for launching drones and F-35s. Lifts too ... Not tired of getting? Concussion is an unpleasant thing

        Is Galyun a Fitzgerald destroyer BIC? The US admiral has already told everything about him, but he is just the liberal who conducted the investigation of the ram.

        An aircraft carrier is not critical for Russia, and actually, at the time when the Russian Federation won in Syria - the United States limonizes Iraq in Iraq ... And also in Afghanistan, and in Syria. Hi ospreyam - help a lot

                Will not help. The penguins still have fins - they can’t hold a gun - so the Arabs will continue to shoot them and blow them up - the Tsarnaevs

          for the Yankees, it is VERY IMPORTANT TO MEET AN ENEMY AT THE EXIT FROM THE NATURAL PORTRAITS OF APPOINTMENT. do not let the oceans in the Pacific and Atlant
          work ahead of schedule. there is money. till.
          how they end - see how to repair "Kuznetsov", and the amers have 10 of them + stock

        The United States creates a convertiplane for aircraft carriers !!!

        Practically all types of aircraft technology, based on aircraft carriers, have folding wings to reduce dimensions. This is adaroblo (Osprey), what will be added? And how much space will take in the hangar? An aircraft carrier is not a stationary airfield, where, on occasion, you can park on a lawn, on a ship, every square meter is registered. Or just flew in, flew away.

          Apparently the blades will fold, then there is nothing more. But the transport aircraft is not very compact. Noyernoye such a layout suits.

          There, as it were, the folding wing (swivel along the fuselage)

            Thanks for the video. An elegant solution, the wing goes through the wing. Why steamed the whole mechanism of assembly turned and ready.

              Here the main feature of the wing is that the aircraft takes up less space, and this is important not only for ship hangars but also for airfield bunkers and field camouflage airfields. The only jamb specifically for the osprey is the engines (power plants) specialized, not helicopter, the local developers were crazy about them and do not want to put normal SU in any way.

    I wonder how profitable a tiltrotor is (according to CERs - the total cost of ownership) compared with a hybrid - a verto-airplane.

      It surpasses F-35 in money - from 66 million dollars to 116.1 million dollars.
      By accident, perhaps the most emergency aircraft in the United States. It got to the point that the Secretary General of the Japanese Cabinet Yoshihide Suga demanded that the United States either ensure the safety of convertiplanes or prohibit their flights over Japan.

          Correctly! Here in Russia, the submarines are drowning, the aircraft carrier is on fire! And the United States creates everything dubious!

          The technique is quite normal, of course, very emergency is the most difficult is the duplication and adjustment of engines during transitions

        I once read that a very dangerous transition from horizontal to vertical (and vice versa). That everything is automatic - there’s nothing to do manually.
        I think the knot of the rotary engines requires serious service.

          The mechanics at Osprey are very complicated: both the engine turns and the shaft passing across so that you can fly on one engine, and the gearbox is still to this shaft ... Its accident rate fell after the first 10 years of accidents, but the service and, hence, the flight hour extremely expensive.

            Do they not know the golden rule of mechanics? The more complex the mechanism, the greater the likelihood of its failure. Or the main thing is to cut money, on such a cloudy expensive equipment?

      So far, it comes in the main indicator. Convertibles are in service and hybrids are developing.

    and such a helicopter like * Scorpio * from Avatar? wouldn't be better? only can with synchronous circuit. Kamovtsy like this develop, promising

      I doubt that they can build a tiltrotor in fast-moving Russia! Rather temples build!
