Navy Greyhound Replacement First Flight

The first CMV-22 has flown with first deployment in 2021. Excerpt highlights the improvements over the C-2 Greyhound it is replacing.

Compared to the current aircraft, the C-2A Greyhound, the CMV-22B has an increased range, more cargo capacity, enhanced beyond-line-of-sight communications, and offers quicker cargo loading and unloading, according to the Navy. “The most notable structural difference between existing V-22 variants and the CMV-22B that can be seen in the photo is the bulbous fuel tank extensions to the forward portion of the sponsons on either side of the aircraft”

If you see an Osprey in the UK, is it a US machine or UK military? I get a lot of overflights

The UK is not operating V-22. Based on nose equipment, markings and camouflage scheme, that's a USAF spec ops CV-22A.

They have been based here since summer 2013... with the 352nd SOW at RAF Mildenhall.
