US Navy Rear Admiral: New CMV-22B Osprey convertiplanes should form the basis of the transport wing of aircraft carriers of the future

45

The US Navy confirmed the achievement of initial operational readiness with a new modification of the Osprey tiltrotor. This is a modification of the CMV-22B Osprey, which passed the final tests on February 17-18. The main task that the command sets in terms of operating the new version of convertiplanes is the task of operating as part of the aviation wing of aircraft carriers.

US Navy Rear Admiral Andrew Loizel:

The first deployment of a new modification of the CMV-22B Osprey tiltrotor in conjunction with the air wing of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson took place. This is an operational success, which personally instills confidence in me in terms of talking about the great future of this technique.

The American rear admiral says that the new modification of the tiltrotor should provide more effective support for the crews of aircraft carriers, including the prompt delivery of goods.

Andrew Loizel:

These convertiplanes should form the basis of the transport wing of aircraft carriers of the future. During the tests, they confirmed their performance.

It is reported that the new modifications of the CMV-22B Osprey convertoplanes will replace the US Navy's C-2A Greyhound tactical carrier-based transport aircraft. American media reports say that the CMV-22B Osprey convertiplanes delivered payloads aboard the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson during test flights. These are provisions, mail, accessories. Also on board the convertiplane, groups of US Navy and Marine Corps personnel were delivered to the aircraft carrier.

Now, the CMV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft have received IOC (Initial Operational Readiness) status, which allows them to be used in transport missions.

The new modification of the well-known American tiltrotor is characterized by increased payload and an increased range of use by about 120 km.

    In the meantime, they will replace, how much money can be cut! )))

        Saw - how is it? When do the children-students of the Secretary of Defense get luxury real estate (somewhere in New York or Los Angeles)? For which dad with a ministerial salary had to work on bread and water for 30 years? smile
        It is unlikely: the journalists there are not afraid, they will quickly unearth and print. And after the scandal, the minister will be buried ..

            Corporations are doing everything possible to get a tasty morsel out of this amount.

            The most they can do is raise the cost of the work. Or fill up R&D by spending funds. (As when creating the A-12 deck) But this causes publicity and proceedings, courts.
            A more reasonable intention of corporations is to simply get a contract from the army / navy / air force, which in itself is already very profitable, and even good for reputation.

    I doubt that such a replacement with a convertible transport aircraft will be equivalent. In the pros, the first has only vertical takeoff and landing. But, in bad weather, this is also its minus! For example, you can take an ordinary turntable, landing in a storm is almost a feat with a risk to the crew and equipment. Or, are the Yankees sure that when the oxpreys take off and land, the weather will be constantly good?

      There is a concept of non-flying weather. and in such weather they try not to fly. True, you will not envy the rescuers. Most accidents occur in non-flying weather. But how do they manage to fly? And envelopes can take off and land on an airplane, like helicopters. The carrying capacity is slightly increased and fuel is saved.

              in the total cost of operating an aircraft carrier and its air wing, these are insignificant costs.
              There are only three dozen Greyhounds, for all 11 aircraft carriers.

              "Osprey" is good because it is already being mass-produced. So you don’t have to pay for the development of a new aircraft - and then scatter this amount on production cars. Given that the US Navy needs only 38 carrier-based transporters, the new-designed vehicle would become golden (like the Marine EFV that got into a similar situation, which, after all the reductions in purchases, became a multiple more expensive than the Abram).
              And the transport "Osprey" can simply be re-ordered.

                In principle, the carrier-based AWACS Hokai is the same aircraft as the C-2, and it is also purchased as a land-based one, so the market will be noticeably larger if AWACS is made on the basis of the new machine. But we still went to use Osprey.

                  I think it’s structurally a little more difficult to place an antenna sheet here, but if they figure it out somehow, we’ll see Osprey AWACS

          Agree. They are a superior substitute.
          V-22 exceeds more than 2 times the C-2 in terms of carrying capacity, more than 9 tons versus 4,5 tons. In terms of flight range, 4100 km versus 3700 km. Plus, the ability to take off and land with a jog or vertically, which makes it possible to deliver cargo up to frigates, destroyers with a suitable helipad; the possibility of lifting oversized cargo on an external sling; more compact storage.
          Of the minuses, only the price and complexity of maintenance. Which is not significant in comparison with the capabilities that the tiltrotor gives.

          This refers to a shortened takeoff, when the engines are tucked at an angle of 45 '. In this case, the carrying capacity increases.

        It still looks very large. On the other hand, if the capacity is greater than that of the current transport, then why not. In general, it is difficult to give a specific assessment of the effectiveness of this solution.

          The length of Osprey and C-2 Greyhaun, to which he is replacing, is the same - a little more than 17 meters.
          In the folded state, the Osprey is already almost one and a half times; at the C-2, only the ends of the wings fold.

    These convertiplanes should form the basis of the transport wing of aircraft carriers of the future.
    It is exclusively their problem from what angle to look into the future. A tiltrotor, so a tiltrotor. In American films, they are massively used even in the fight against aliens, although no more than half, or even a third, reaches the landing site.

    The reason for the replacement is known - a larger cargo compartment. The Greyhound does not include the F-35 engine. Now it is logical to replace Hokai with AWACS based on Osprey for reasons of unification. Moreover, there will be a large sales market for such AWACS.

        It will not be possible to radically reduce their size if it is necessary to provide a large number of sorties per day, for example, Queen Elizabeth, 70 thousand tons.

            The trampoline solves the problem of takeoff, but does not solve the problem of landing. And it is more difficult than taking off on aircraft carriers.

      I think that he (together with the F-35B) will make a revolution: then any large UDC will turn, according to its capabilities, into a full-fledged mini-aircraft carrier, capable of seeing hundreds of kilometers around (of course, with fewer flights per day than the “heavy” one).
