Sump'n beats nut'n

This should not be a surprise to anyone. Since they killed the Common Support Aircraft - it was only a matter of time until they looked at the Osprey.
The Navy may replace its aging fleet of C-2 Greyhounds with tilt-rotor V-22 Ospreys, a Navy spokeswoman said.

“The V-22 is being considered as one option for the replacement of the C-2; however, there has been no final determination and, to date, there have been no Navy-specific requirements designed into the V-22,” said Lt. Callie Ferrari, a spokeswoman at the Pentagon.

The Osprey — a revolutionary aircraft that takes off like a helicopter and flies like a fixed-wing plane — has just recently begun to deploy with the Marine Corps, its primary customer.
Kind of like plowing a field with a BMW, but when you refuse to go by the tractor store ...

Ahem ... this will be fun.... Hey SJS .... you know they can build an AEW version of the Osprey too?
