V-280 instead of V-22 Osprey
New, WishlistPublic

Description

The V-280 is a third generation tilt rotor aircraft expected t tho be in service in 2020+. It is essentially an upgraded V-22. Though it does not have a ramp in the back, it has a lot of improvements over the Osprey. For example, both turboprop engines are attached by a single shaft that does not need a heavy gearbox in the center of the wings. This reduces weight and still allows the aircraft to fly even if one of the engines are lost or fail. Other improvements include the wide Black-Hawk style doors, highly maneuverable design, retractable landing gear, great fuel efficiency, speeds over 518 km/h or 280 knots, and a 15-man (plus or minus a few, depending on the situation) crew/passenger capacity. Also, different from the V-22, the engine does not rotate. Only the props rotate, which allows for greater stabilization during hover mode. There is also a larger prototype, comparable in capacity to the V-22, and a private jet in looks.

Awesome idea. Love it!

Doesn't say it will be in service. Just says it will be marketed to the military.

Edit: Finally some weapons on the VTOL!

Why is this in the balancing category?

*before reading the description of the V-280*

HOLY FUCK YES, BIS MUST READ THIS

*after reading the description*

.......... you DO know that some of these stuff are even inferior to the V-22, right?

the max crew is up to 32 troops and the 4 extra pilots/copilots/crew/engineers/cargo managers

the V-22 already has both engines on a single shaft, same with the landing gear

And also the V-22 speed is just 9km/h less than the V-280. Virtually NOTHING.

Though the valor is a more viable option for a game-setting around 2035.

Hm yeah I guess the V-22 has more cargo capacity. The V-280 is pretty much a newer high speed, smaller, more advanced helicopter transport thingy. There were only 160 V-22's made (they cost over $71,000,000), and they are eventually going to go down in some operation or get decommissioned or something. Either they make new ones, make V-280's, come up with something new, or maybe the US government can't afford to flush their toilets and use civilian vehicles :P

I still think that the V-22 is just useful for being a cargo harrier, and i remember there was a test for an CV-130, test wich ended up being succefull, but, just like the YMC-130, wich crashed because of pilot error and human failure, both programs got canceled, same with the Carrier based C-130

Only thing is that the V-22 is bigger and used for more troops. No offense but this aircraft won't have much of a difference from the Blackhawk in game because it does not seat as many personnel. It does, however, have VTOL capability.

Hm, and the ghosthawks are pretty damn speedy already. But V-22's will be as ancient as a willy's jeep :P

if it has weapons in it then it might be used as a CAS aircraft and still carry 6 or 8 soldiers. BLUFOR has no heli like this. however BLUFOR needs a heavy transport heli like the v-22. still porting the v-22 to A3 can be left to the community it has already being done : http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=23848

We could have both?

V-22 is USMC, so no.

+1 because opflash/arma has always been set slightly in the future with next generation vehicles and weapons available.

Not really, this is the first time they do, before it was set in things like 2020 yet they were using modern assets, in real life the US army is already using multicam while in this game they are still using it in 2035. Its the other way around, the saga has been always using previous gen assets.

No to what? my previous comment was not a question, it was a fact.

"Though it does not have a ramp in the back, it has a lot of improvements over the Osprey. For example, both turboprop engines are attached by a single shaft. This allows the aircraft to fly even if one of the engines are lost or fail."

Actually Osprey has this advantage too.

"the V-22 already has both engines on a single shaft, same with the landing gear"

Landing gear on single shaft? Oh man :D
