The U.S. Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey, the world's first production tilt-rotor aircraft, combines the best capabilities of a helicopter with range, airspeed and payload of fixed-wing airplanes.

With vertical takeoff and landing ability, runways are not necessary, making it an ideal solution in many situations where more speed than a helicopter is required but landing as an aircraft would, is not an option.

Composite materials make up 43% of the V-22's airframe. For compact storage and transport, the V-22's rotors fold in 90 seconds and its wing rotates to align, front-to-back, with the fuselage.

 For safety, the MV-22B features a cross-coupled drive system so either engine can power the rotors if one engine fails.

The MV-22B can transport 24 combat troops, 20,000 pounds of internal or up to 15,000 pounds of external cargo using its medium lift and vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. The fuselage however is not pressurized, and personnel must wear on-board oxygen masks above 10,000 feet.

Most Osprey missions use fixed wing flight, which reduces wear and tear on the aircraft as well as operational costs.
