ISRAEL'S ATTACK ON USS LIBERTY -

He's been in my KF for quite some time, and the OP as well; he's the twit
who keeps shreiking about "impending" or "immenient" U.S. military action on
Iran (with nukes, even) and when the date for...

Loose Bolts Ground V-22 Ospreys; Four Aircraft in Iraq Will Need Fixes

Bet you won't have Vkince or the other "Bash the Osprey" crowd admit that.
They're so fixated on bashing the V-22 that they don't suggest any
alternatives, other than a "generic" helo.

You really think that any Senator is going to vote against a major DOD
program if it means losing jobs (and thus votes) in their home state? That's
why Cranston put his nuclear-freeze ideology aside...

You'd be surprised: CA Senator Alan Cranston was a nuclear freezenik to the
core back in the '80s, but when the B-1B came up for votes in the Senate, he
always voted for it: it was built in Palmdale,...

To Vkince and the rest of the anti-Osprey crowd, that alone justifies
cancellation.

And nobody's getting the ball rolling on a V-22 replacement. Which means,
like it or not, it's the V-22 by default. The anti-Osprey crowd keeps
shreiking "No V-22s", without any suggestion of a OTS...

You're still not saying which helo you'd rather have the USMC buy in place
of the Osprey. Name a helo that could do the job as the H-46s head off to
the parking lot in the desert.

As far as squadron service, it is a new aircraft. And yes, glitches do come
up after a type's service introduction, either immediately, or years later.

Don't say that to the crowd that's against the V-22: they'll seize on
anything to argue for killing the program (justified or not).

Well, given that the last new-build H-46 came off the Boeing-Vertol line in
1971...how long would it have taken to restart production, with production
tools likely destroyed?

Then explain its record in Iraq and Afghanistan so far. No combat losses or
crashes in-country. Like I said, if you have an alternative platform to
replace the H-46s, let's hear it. Otherwise, either...

As long as it takes. The USMC has a habit of getting its way on procurement,
so either get on board or get out of the way. Not to mention that it's been
a number of years since the last crash (the...

First flight is one thing: actual operational use is another matter
altogether. Sometimes things are discovered with some Fleet use. Problems

A VERY big one: the second N-1 failure was equal to a tac nuke in the 2 to 5
KT range.
