Pentagon chief: US to put six Osprey converters in Israel

25

The United States intends to supply the six B-22 Osprey to the Israeli military, Chuck Hagel, the head of the US military, said on Thursday.


According to local experts, Israel will become the first country to which the US exports these aircraft, equipped with two engines and capable of turning almost 98 degrees. Due to the translation of its two screw engines in the horizontal plane, the tiltrotor can take off and land like a helicopter and fly like an airplane, ITAR-TASS reports.

Hagel indicated that earlier this year “was achieved historical an agreement aimed at increasing the military potential of Israel by supplying the country with the latest weapons. " “One of them is the B-22 Osprey, which will significantly increase the effectiveness of Israeli special forces,” he said.

“I ordered the United States Marine Corps to ensure expedited fulfillment of this order,” the head of the Pentagon said. “The United States and Israel’s defense ties are stronger than ever, and they continue to strengthen.”

    Pentagon chief: US to put six Osprey converters in Israel
    This is where they will be dispassionately tested ...

      January 15, AEX.RU - The Israeli Air Force began flight tests of the American V-22 Osprey convertiplanes, reports Lenta.ru with reference to IAF Magazine.

      According to the official publication of the Israeli Air Force, two pilots - Lt. Col. Nimrod and Avi - arrived in the United States in December 2012 to conduct Osprey assessment flights. According to them, American tiltrotors can significantly simplify the performance of a number of operations, but they have several critical "inconveniences" for novice pilots.

      According to Avi, the pilot of the CH-53D Sea Stallion transport helicopter, the tiltrotor is able to quickly and sharply pick up speed in flight, which complicates control somewhat. “The pilot uses a stick and a system similar to the traction device. In one mode, the stick is responsible for altitude, and the thrust for speed. In another mode, they change roles. In transient mode, it feels like you are losing control ", - said Avi.

      Osprey, an American consortium of Bell-Boeing, explained that you need to get used to managing a convertiplane in transit mode, it is not dangerous, and all the necessary skills are quickly acquired as you gain experience. The rest of the Israeli pilots checking Osprey, said the good flying qualities of the American convertiplanes, allowing to significantly expand the range of tasks performed by the Israeli Air Force.

      As Avi noted, fixed-wing aircraft experience stalls occasionally, especially when the aircraft are operated by retraining helicopter pilots. “On the V-22, you have to work very hard to create a stall effect,” Avi said. According to Nimrod, a pilot of the S-70A and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters in the 124th squadron of the Israeli Air Force. Http://www.aex.ru/news/2013/1/15/101719/

      This is not only problematic, but also expensive ....
      At a cost, as in operation.
      Then I see the problem of operating a tiltrotor in dry, sand-saturated air.
      For Israel, it is clearly overdone, the country is small (500X150)), And the target for missiles - "Osprey" is very good, the largest of a helicopter and only a little 100 km faster))))
      You can’t fly to Iran on it !?
      From Syria, some of the militants will still penetrate into Israel and use modern weapons (which they were taught by American and Turkish instructors)))

      In general, we will see on Yu-tuba how they fall under the exclamations of "Allah is Great")))

          The only question is understanding "sufficient funds" ...
          In the nature of the interaction of technology, TASKS, application ...
          "Osprey" is put on the basis of the Jewish position_So it was)))))
          I, as a specialist, can see that Israel, these birds do not need anything ....
          And if from "Gazprom" a tour of Jews, then Israel will not be able to pay for this expensive pleasure (operation) ...

          I already wrote about tanks, I see the Jews began to reduce these connections))) You would have easy-armored vehicles would have come up + connection (what are you doing well) + Support fighters .. (flight time on Sinai no more than 20 minutes (any group can withstand fight this time))
          Osprey and helicopters will have to wait about an hour ....
          As a specialist, I have enough time for destruction, even for a tank platoon and for meeting Helicopters with Manual Missile Systems ....

          Well, this is if you do not fight against the Papuans (Arabs)))

            So you see the situation better than the General Staff of Israel? Maybe Israel doesn’t need transport aircraft either - well, the country is small, 8 hours by car.

            Super brilliant. Tell me, what side is Gazprom, the Jews and Israel? That is, half of Russia goes to Israel for treatment, agricultural technology is one of the leading in the world, and you most likely are working on a process developed in Israel, has nothing to do with it?

            It’s strange. Israel did not allow Gazprom to develop gas fields (despite numerous attempts by the latter).
            Jews spread rot Jews. Correctly say the biggest anti-Semites are Jews. I want to cry for Gazprom.

        The idea of ​​this monster was originally like an air tank. For example, in Papuania, you need to create a temporary base (jumping platform) for Cobra. He can take on board 9 tons of fuel simultaneously. Usually they take 4 tons of fuel and a group of 16 marines to deploy a refueling point and guard and defense. Well, what about the reliability in operation .. Senator John McCain struck out such a dubious compliment to the convertiplane: "The V-22 looks great in the sky ... when it’s not idle to repair."

        The third-generation tiltrotor project was introduced by Bell Helicopter. The V-280 Valor was unveiled at the Fort Worth Conference of the United States Army Aviation Association. The development of the new tiltrotor will be carried out taking into account the experience in creating and using the V-22 Osprey. It is planned that with the new project, the company will take part in a tender by the U.S. Army (Future Vertical Lift Army Program) for the creation of a medium multi-purpose helicopter or tiltrotor, which will replace the fleet of obsolete UH-2030 Black Hawk in the 60s. It is expected that the flight prototype of the promising tiltrotor will be assembled by 2017.

          The car was originally quite problematic, no one argues with this. However, it is worth noting that most of the problems were overcome. At the moment, this is a fairly reliable and well-established device. With its own characteristics, advantages and disadvantages - but whoever does not have them.

            I agree. How pretty speed and a load-lifting apparatus, it is necessary for the combat support of the deployment of quick reaction forces in hard-to-reach areas. As a lifeguard is also not bad.

            The balance between technical capabilities and cash costs looks different in paper tables and combat conditions. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. Osprey is too expensive to tinker with, but it has proven so useful that you can't leave it either.

    In modern history, no military aircraft caused as much discussion as Osprey. It is both a marvel of engineering and a target for ridicule. Both abusive bloggers and serious politicians scoff at him, but the pilots and the military command admit that he revolutionized the very notions of air mobility. In general, no matter what they say, but the plane will live. This unit is used by both marines and the command of special operations of the Air Force, so in the coming years more than one Osprey will enter the troops.

    that you find fault with the device? a perfectly normal multifunctional thing. a helicopter-plane. maybe someone considers this an expensive pleasure, but do not forget that Israel never saves in matters of security of the state and its citizens. this is a fact.
