History.

The Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is a fascinating and futuristic combination of a helicopter and an airplane. The tiltrotor/rotator was the first short take-off and landing multi-role aircraft. It owes its extraordinary properties to the rotating drive system. Engine nacelles with rotors with a diameter of 12 meters can rotate during flight. Thanks to this solution, the machine can take off and land like a helicopter, and after changing the position of the engines, it goes to horizontal flight. Turning the propulsion nacelles by 45 degrees enables both short take-off and landing, similar to STOL aircraft. The Osprey was jointly developed by Bell Helicopter Textron, which produces wings, engine nacelles with Rolls-Royce engines, rotors, propulsion system, tail control surfaces and loading ramp, and the Boeing Company, which produces the fuselage, cockpit, avionics and controls. The Osprey manufacturing company is called Bell-Boeing. Due to its extraordinary properties, the V-22 Osprey found its way into the equipment of the United States Marine Corps, United States Navy and other services, with the only exception being the US Army. It is used in missions around the world. The Osprey has marked its presence in the Middle East and Afghanistan. The first foreign user of the V-22 was Japan.
