The United States Armed Forces[N 1] are the military forces of the United States of America. They consist of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard.[6] The U.S. has a strong tradition of civilian control of the military. The President of the United States is the military’s overall head, and helps form military policy with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), a federal executive department, acting as the principal organ by which military policy is carried out. The DoD is headed by the Secretary of Defense, who is a civilian and Cabinet member. The Defense Secretary is second in the military’s chain of command, just below the President, and serves as the principal assistant to the President in all DoD-related matters.[7] To coordinate military action with diplomacy, the President has an advisory National Security Council headed by a National Security Advisor. Both the President and Secretary of Defense are advised by a seven-member Joint Chiefs of Staff, which includes the head of each of the Defense Department’s service branches as well as the chief of the National Guard Bureau. Leadership is provided by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.[8] The Commandant of the Coast Guard is not a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The V-22 originated from the United States Department of Defense Joint-service Vertical take-off/landing Experimental (JVX) aircraft program started in 1981. The team of Bell Helicopter and Boeing Helicopters was awarded a development contract in 1983 for the tiltrotor aircraft. The Bell Boeing team jointly produce the aircraft.[4] The V-22 first flew in 1989, and began flight testing and design alterations; the complexity and difficulties of being the first tiltrotor intended for military service in the world led to many years of development.

The United States Marine Corps began crew training for the Osprey in 2000, and fielded it in 2007; it is supplementing and will eventually replace their CH-46 Sea Knights. The Osprey’s other operator, the U.S. Air Force, fielded their version of the tiltrotor in 2009. Since entering service with the U.S. Marine Corps and Air Force, the Osprey has been deployed in both combat and rescue operations over Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.
The Osprey is the world’s first production tiltrotor aircraft, with one three-bladed proprotor, turboprop engine, and transmission nacelle mounted on each wingtip. It is classified as a powered lift aircraft by the Federal Aviation Administration.[88] For takeoff and landing, it typically operates as a helicopter with the nacelles vertical and rotors horizontal. Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90° in as little as 12 seconds for horizontal flight, converting the V-22 to a more fuel efficient, higher speed turboprop aircraft. STOL rolling-takeoff and landing capability is achieved by having the nacelles tilted forward up to 45°.[68] Other orientations are possible, such as the “80 Jump” takeoff which uses nacelles at 80° to quickly achieve high altitude and speed.[89]

Composite materials make up 43% of the V-22’s airframe. The proprotors blades also use composites.[68] For compact storage and transport, partly on Marine launch ships, the V-22’s rotors fold in 90 seconds and its wing rotates to align, front-to-back, with the fuselage.[90] Due to the requirement of folding the rotors their 38 feet diameter is 5 feet less than optimal for vertical takeoff, resulting in high disk loading.[89] Most Osprey missions use fixed wing flight 75 percent or more of the time, reducing wear and tear on the aircraft and reducing operational costs. This fixed wing flight is higher than typical helicopter missions allowing longer range line-of-sight communications for improved command and control.[24]
The V-22’s two Rolls-Royce AE 1107C engines are connected by drive shafts to a common central gearbox so that one engine can power both proprotors if an engine failure occurs.[53] However, if a proprotor gearbox fails that proprotor cannot be feathered, and both engines must be stopped before an emergency landing.[52] The aircraft’s autorotation characteristics are poor partly because the rotors have low inertia.[52] Boeing has stated the V-22 design loses 10% of its vertical lift over a Tiltwing design when operating in helicopter mode because of airflow resistance due to the wings, but that the Tiltrotor design has better short takeoff and landing performance.[91] The rotorwash usually prevents usage of the starboard door in hover, and the rear ramp is used for rappelling and hoisting.[52]

  1. There is a lot of absolutely useless missions that the military are still taking on wasting time and money. Why are they still fucking around with midair refuelling in this day, and who approved that ridiculous design on that chopper. There is too many moving parts on that crap it won’t last in production or in the service. Absolutely waste of time and resources.

  2. Esses tipos de aeronave nunca tinha visto nem no sonho , ainda tenho minhas dúvidas como esses governantes consegue gastar tanto dinheiro pra ser destruído em tão pouco tempo

  3. A few years ago in the state of AZ. Not sure where. Maybe outside of Tucson. A V-22 flew above another V-22 and the prop wash knocked the other down and crashed. All aboard was lost. However I hear nothing but good things about this craft and a few accidents happen with new aircraft. Not that it happens all of the time. I was in HELICOPTER COMBAT 7 COMBAT SEARCH AND RESCUE.(NAVY) (HC7CSAR)( Vietnam) The old H-3s and HH-3s. (That is what they haul the President around in) Not to mention a few other old types of helos. I'll bet that our pilots, crew members and the ground crew members would have loved to have 6 or 8 of these around SAR sorties.

    For the Men, Woman, and their Families who serve,have served, and are going in. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

    I AM NO HERO BUT I HAVE WALKED BESIDE MANY. I DO NOT PILOT THE AIRCRAFT BUT HELP MAKE SURE THAT IT FLIES. I DO NOT FIRE THE WEAPONS BUT MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE IN EXCELLENT WORKING ORDER TO FIRE FOR THE GUNNER. I DO NOT PROTECT AIRCRAFT BUT MAKE SURE THAT THE ARMOR IS IN EXCELLENT WORKING ORDER TO PROTECT THE PERSON BEHIND IT.

  4. Uhmm? As a retired military pilot with a physics degree I certainly do not agree that this complicated piece of junk would be considered "safe" in any way. We, the military, have always taken great pride in deceiving, and lying to, the public.

  5. they are not Russians but Americans that they are tossing themselves to the last tooth from their mouths … so the investment should be done for the poor and poorly developed but you will develop as Satan the wretchedness of the earth otherwise it would be the life of the bad we will live

  6. Хорошая мишень на взлёте👍🏻🦅,но сказать честно,очень продвинутый пепелац,недаром 56000000$ стоит,✈🚁💵💵💵💰

  7. Киевлянин Игорь Сикорский, который когда-то изобрёл первый вертолёт – офигел бы от просмотренного видео. Так как во всех современных вертолётах заложен фундамент именно его.
