The Osprey is just... no. In the time frame it is just garbage even for a prototype. Also, given the fact that they have already said that we're not getting fixed wing that can hover, the Osprey is most definitely not going to be present.

The Osprey would most likely be modelled as a high-speed helicopter not a fixed wing called in from off map. It would be a transport vehicle. Not sure how possible the swivelling engine pods would be though.

If the Tulpa isn't in because it would require special setting up/taking down animation, I find it unlikely the V-22 will see use as a helicopter unit because that would also require a unique hovering/flight animation.

Aside from that, having the V-22 over 2 much more viable and non-prototype helicopters for the USMC would just be asinine. There simply isn't a reason to include it.

Does that mean the CH-46 and/or CH-53 will be? :shock:

Since the Australian army operated the Kiowa, I suppose there's the possibility that they might get the Kiowa Warrior.

I agree that there needs to be more kinds of HMMV (some can have AGLs, .50 Cals and M-60's all in one cost 15-20 8hp and HMMV speed)
transport HMMV right now is useless

Lol no.
Kiowa is in the LOH role, no offensive capabilities here.
Also its a OH-58A and B variant, no mast sight, no laser etc, at most a weapon pylon but Australia does not use weapons on that IRRC.
