Multimission, Multiservice, Twin-turbine, Vertical-lift, Tiltrotor Transport Aircraft. Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey can carry 24 combat troops, or up to 20?000 pounds of internal cargo or 15,000 pounds of external cargo, at twice the speed of the helicopter. It features a cross-coupled drive system so either engine can power the rotors if one engine fails. For shipboard compatibility, the rotors fold and the wing rotates to minimize the aircraft's footprint for storage. The V-22 is the only vertical lift platform capable of rapid self-deployment to any theater of operation, worldwide.
