I was reading some interesting things about the new CVF the British are building. One of the things they were talking about was the MASC (Maritime Airborne Surveillance and Control) aircraft they were looking at. One of the more interesting ones was the V-22. Apparently, the two carriers are going to be built as jump jet carriers to start with the capability to be retrofitted for conventional aircraft. The three prospects so far are the AugustaWestland EH101 Merlin, ASC Variant, the V-22, and the E-2C/D.

The artist conception of the V-22 is VERY interesting. It has a triangular shaped radar antennae set on the back, like the E-2 and E-3.

Here's a link for anyone who wants to read up on the program.

Wow the pictures are awesome, maybe there start making AWACS like V-22 Ospreys for Amphibious ships, that way the aerospace near the beaches and further inland will be covered, but I don't think we would even be in a war where we would be invading from the beaches, either way intresting article.
