First Operational CMV-22B Osprey delivered to the U.S. Navy

Posted by in category: military

The U.S. Navy’s first CMV-22B Osprey for operational use arrived at Naval Air Station North Island, June 22. The tilt-rotor aircraft configured for Carrier Onboard Delivery (COD) missions is replacing the C-2A Greyhound.
=====================
The aircraft is assigned to the “Titans” of Fleet Logistics
Multi-Mission Squadron VRM 30, the Navy’s first CMV-22B squadron. VRM-30
was established in 2018 to begin the U…S Navy’s transition from the
C-2A Greyhound to the CMV-22B Osprey.

The CMV-22B is designed to carry up to 6,000 pounds of cargo and/or
personnel and operate up to a range of 1,150 nautical miles. One of the
reasons the Navy selected the V-22 airframe to serve in the COD role is
because of its ability to carry the F135 engine power module used by the
F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.
