CMV-22B Lands on USS New York


The CMV-22B is being purchased by the U.S. Navy to replace the C-2A Greyhound.

But unlike the Greyhound, the CMV-22B can land on a wide variety of platforms which then enables not just large-deck carriers but fleet wide logistics support.

This will prove especially important in a contested environment where MSC ships might find it difficult to approach the combat fleet to provide for critical combat supplies.

The featured photos was shot in 2020 and showed the CMV-22B Osprey, attached to the Blackjack of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Two One (HX-21), landing on the amphibious transport dock ship USS New York (LPD 21),
