The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The V-22 originated from the United States Department of Defense Joint-service Vertical take-off/landing Experimental (JVX) aircraft program started in 1981. The team of Bell Helicopter and Boeing Helicopters was awarded a development contract in 1983 for the tiltrotor aircraft. The Bell Boeing team jointly produce the aircraft. The V-22 first flew in 1989, and began flight testing and design alterations; the complexity and difficulties of being the first tiltrotor intended for military service in the world led to many years of development.

Ghost ReconEdit

The V-22 Osprey is a helicopter in use by The Ghosts.

During the Kazakhstan mission, the Ghosts were tasked with destroying the wreckage of a crashed Marine Corps helicopter.

A V-22 was shot down during the Sri Lankan mission, forcing The Ghosts and the crew to fight to a new landing zone.

Following the Raven's Rock coup and the restructuring of The Ghosts into the GST, the team was given dedicated air support and used a V-22 to travel to Libya.
