The Bell Boeing V-22 redefines operational possibilities
The Bell Boeing V-22 is the world’s first production tiltrotor aircraft, successfully blending the vertical flight capability of a helicopter with the speed, range, altitude and endurance of an airplane. This unique combination provides the warfighter with an unprecedented advantage. This allows more effective mission execution and realization of missions previously unachievable in one aircraft. Comprehensively tested and currently in full-rate production, the Bell Boeing V-22 has proven to be a survivable and transformational platform in the most challenging environments on the planet.
The enhanced capability of a Bell Boeing V-22 tiltrotor provides expanded battlespace maneuver. The increased stand-off range lowers seabasing risk, and can greatly expand what is operationally possible with its unique capabilities.
The V-22's multi-mission capability cannot be matched. From all manner of missions, support or transport to whatever the need requires in a speed-to-scene, coupled with a hovering capability, the Osprey tiltrotor delivers faster, better - and without peer.
Two Rolls-Royce AE1107C Liberty turboshaft engines supply power for the V-22, producing 6,150 shp (4,586 kW) each. For safe, reliable flight, the V-22's cross-coupled transmissions allow either engine, separately or together, to power the rotors.
At twice the speed of a helicopter, the Osprey can carry 24 combat troops, or up to 20,000 pounds (9,072 kg) of internal cargo or 15,000 pounds (6,804 kg) of external cargo. Its cargo bay can accommodate nine litters with medical personnel and equipment.
