AOA Simulations Post New V-22 Previews
Angle of Attack Simulations have released new previews of the upcoming update to their long-lasting V-22 Osprey, these include renders of the CMV-22B naval version.
The Bell V-22 Osprey is an American vertical takeoff and landing twin-engine aircraft. This VTOL capacity is achieved thanks to the use of tiltrotor technology. The aircraft is often used in special operations as it can cruise at 270 knots and 15’000 feet and then land on top of a building. The Osprey is currently used by the Japanese Self-Defence Forces, the U.S. Air Force, Marines and Navy.
On the 19th of May, AOA announced on their Facebook page that they were also developing 3 different variants including the MV-22B (Marines), CV-22B (Special Operations Command) and CMV-22B (Navy). In the post, the developer included different renders of the aircraft’s 3D model that has been vastly improved since the original announcement thanks to the developer receiving documentation on the complex machine. The developer has insisted on the fact that the model is limited to 112’000 polygons for comfort in virtual reality.
A few hours ago, AOA published new previews on Facebook, this time of the CMV-22B, the navy version. The aircraft is equipped for carrier operations where it might have to conduct long-range missions, known as “blue water” missions. The most notable external changes are the two extra fuel tanks that can be seen on the sides. This variant also adds a high-frequency radio used for open sea operations.
This major update was announced in November 2019, check out our article about it.
