I believe it would enter service, cause if not, the US DoD would commit the highest mistake since the UK DoD choose to go for an 'all missiles' air force back in the 60s, decission which stills hurts in the UK defense industry. Lots of programs ditched, TSR2, Supersonic Harrier, see these links:

Now you did...


Another (earlier) victim: The Hawker P.1121. Same capabilities as F-4 Phantom back in the early 60s (in fact, in the late 50s)

Back on topic:

The V-22 is a flying box capable of almost any dull duty. It's *the* definitive ASW flying platform (or is someone thinking of a MAD pod and torpedoes for the X-35?).

As an AEW platform, i think those huge rotors would do more than a nasty interference, but...

The Avro CF-105 Arrow >.< =*(
Mix a Mig-25, a F-15 and a Mirage, and you have the CF-105.

Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow

I'm thinking about splitting this tread in two... Mine is the fault.

Any oppinion/ clue/ certainty about the V-22 or we must wait to, as KKing123 said, V-22 to have green-light to production?

A lot of good aircraft that never were: you'll find an old discussion on the Arrow in the archives, by the way.
As for the Osprey, it's getting a terrible press still and my impression is that it and the new Harrier are heading for the scrap-heap and the Marines won't get them.

Please, edit your post and use tags, because the the link is broken in two...

To Moderators: it seems there is something wrong with the forum automatically putting tags to links.
