The Israeli air force has frozen its evaluation of the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, with a senior defence source indicating that the tiltrotor is unable to perform some missions currently conducted using its Sikorsky CH-53 transport helicopters.

Israel last year froze a potential acquisition process for the V-22, which had emerged as a possible solution for supporting its special forces personnel following flight evaluations conducted four years go.
In January 2014, the US Department of Defense notified Congress about its intention to sell six of the tiltrotors to the nation.
Following the type's participation in the recent exercise, Israeli sources indicate that a re-evaluation of a V-22 deal could be considered, "even in small numbers".

Il canto delle sirene .....
The V-22 Joint Programme Office is encouraging foreign militaries at Farnborough air show to place orders for the Osprey before the end of FY2020 so as to take advantage of multi-year contract discounts that the US and Japanese military services have secured.
The US Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy, as well as Japan Self-Defense Forces, signed a $4.2 billion multi-year contract in June 2018 for 78 of the tiltrotors with the Bell-Boeing joint venture which manufactures the aircraft.
The purchase was the US government's third multi-year contract for the aircraft.
The bulk purchase came with a price reduction that the Joint Programme Office is able to pass on to foreign militaries, said Col Matthew Kelly, programme manager for the V-22 Joint Programme Office.

Dal 'Daily Report' dell'AFA del 24 Agosto 2018 .....
Yokota Osprey Deployment to Officially Begin Oct. 1 .....

The US military is deploying five CV-22 Ospreys to Yokota AB, Japan, beginning Oct. 1, the Japanese military announced this week.
While the deployment will officially begin this fall, the aircraft have been at the base since this spring.
In late July, when Air Force Magazine visited Yokota, the tilt-rotor aircraft were positioned on the base’s flight line though USAF officials directed questions about their presence to Air Force Special Operations Command.
The Japanese Ministry of Defense said Thursday the deployment will help Japan and the US respond to “various circumstances” in the area, according to the Japan Times (*).
Fifth Air Force Chief of Staff Col. Jean Eisenhut said during a July interview that the CV-22s are part of an increasing AFSOC presence in Japan, a location that is “ideal for their mission.”
The base will eventually house 10 of the aircraft.

Infatti ..... a Okinawa ..... [-X
Denny Tamaki, the son of a Japanese mother and a United States Marine, became the first mixed-race governor in Japan on Sunday after winning a close election in Okinawa, a southern archipelago heavily populated by American military installations.
His victory poses a setback to plans by the Japanese government and the United States to transfer a busy Marine air base on Okinawa from the city of Ginowan to a less populated coastal area on the island.
Mr. Tamaki wants the base moved out of Okinawa altogether.
His opponent, Atsushi Sakima, who was backed by Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party, was until recently the mayor of Ginowan and supported the base’s transfer.

Trent'anni dopo ...
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey first flew 30 years ago today on 19 March 1989.
Since, the Bell-Boeing joint venture behind the tiltrotor has produced more than 375 examples, which have accumulated more than 450,000 flight hours, the manufacturers say.
The transport is flown by all American military services except the US Army.
The US Marine Corps operates the bulk of the aircraft inventory, followed by the US Air Force and the US Navy.
The USN is in the process of introducing the Ospreys into service and projects an initial operational capability for 2021.
The Japan Self-Defense Forces also operates the V-22.

Acquirenti esteri ... sino ad ora solo il Giappone.
E' stato offerto anche a Israele e ad altri paesi ... ma senza risultati apprezzabili ...

Boeing consiglia caldamente di acquistare e ... di farlo al più presto ...
The armed services should hurry up and order more V-22 tiltrotors if they want them, because the program of record is rapidly being built out and there’s a risk of a break in the production line, potentially higher costs, or closing of the line, Boeing has advised.
“If you want more V-22s, you need to start planning for that acquisition now, ” Rick Lemaster, Boeing director of Global Sales and Marketing, said at a press tour of the company’s Philadelphia plant, where CH-47 Chinook helicopters and V-22 fuselages are built.
The company is in the middle of fulfilling a five-year multiyear procurement, Lemaster said, and “we’re pretty close to wrapping up our programs of record” for US domestic customers.
If the services want more airplanes, “we need your order by the third quarter of 2020,” he advised.
But for international customers, they should make their intentions known this summer, because the Foreign Military Sales process needs time to play out.
Any FMS customers would need to have their letter of offer and acceptance in hand by September of 2020, he said.

Da Parigi ... Boeing disposta ad offrire sconti considerevoli ai potenziali acquirenti ... nonostante lo scarso interesse sino ad ora dimostrato nei confronti del velivolo ...
With its ability to offer bulk discounts to foreign militaries closing within about a year, the Bell-Boeing joint venture that makes and sells the V-22 Osprey hopes to close deals for up to 50 aircraft.
Boeing says that about a dozen prospective customers are on its radar, and it is encouraging them to sign a letter of offer and acceptance (LOA) for the tiltrotor by the third quarter of 2020.
Prospective customers include Israel and possibly blue water navies that need to resupply ships on long voyages.

E l' Italia, stando all'articolo, potrebbe essere uno degli obiettivi ...

Una macchina ancora carica di problemi.
E l' USAF sta cercando di correre ai ripari ...
Air Force Special Operations Command’s CV-22 fleet is raising alarm amid low readiness levels and combat availability concerns as it heads into multiple years of upgrades.
CV-22 readiness keeps me up at night,” Col. Dale White, the Air Force’s program executive officer for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and special operations forces, said in a June 19 interview here.
“It's not what it needs to be. It's a tough platform to maintain.”
The high-demand, rough nature of special operations, and the stress that tilting the iconic nacelles - the giant columns that hold the rotors and allow the platform to take off vertically, then pivot to fly forward - puts on the aircraft and its wiring system are driving down the Osprey’s ability to enter combat.
White declined to provide current CV-22 readiness figures.

The United States Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force have signed a $1.2 billion contract with Rolls-Royce for engine maintenance of the Bell-Boeing V-22 fleet.
