No Cool New Toys?

On StrategyPage, Steve Cole has more info on yesterday’s V-22 Osprey story:

A decision on whether to proceed with the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor transport or abandon the program will be made next summer. The problem is that whatever solution is found for the “vortex ring state” (the problem that has caused the crashes) might eventually limit the aircraft’s operations so much that it is no longer tactically useful. If the V-22 is cancelled, expect the Pentagon to swiftly pick a helicopter to replace it.

I’m still waiting for my M-100.
