The Supreme Guide to the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey Infographic

V-22 Osprey Infographic showcases information on one of the world’s most powerful and dynamic VTOL/STOL military transport aircraft—current users of the aircraft include the United States Marine Corps, the United States Air Force, and United States Navy, with Japan officially signed on as the first official export customer


The Supreme Guide to the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey Inforgraphic was created using information that was compiled from Wikipedia’s “Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey” article. It highlights the aircraft’s vital statistics, general specifications, and key performance outputs.

The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an entirely unique multi-mission combat aircraft that is manufactured by a joint-service partnership between Bell Helicopter and Boeing Rotorcraft Systems. It achieved first flight on March 19th, 1989, and was introduced into service on June 13th, 2007. This aircraft was designed around the concept of combining the vertical functionality of a conventional helicopter with the high-speed and long-range outputs of a turboprop aircraft. As a result of its fixed-wing and rotary-wing functionality, the V-22 is well-known for its vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), as well as short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities. It is this versatility and robustness that makes the V-22 the aircraft of choice for a variety of challenging roles.

In addition to direct combat, the V-22 has the capacity to successfully complete search and rescue missions, provide humanitarian assistance, facilitate aircraft carrier on-board delivery, and can assist with military logistics (ex. the transportation of troops and equipment). Along with that, the V-22 has been built with aerial refueling capabilities, which effectively extends the overall range of the aircraft, allowing it to participate in more lengthy missions. Upon landing, the aircraft’s foldable rotors and rotatable wings make for easy storage and allow for the maximization of space.
