Abstract:

The V-22 Osprey has been a pawn in the battle between requirements and costs almost from its inception. The major factors with regard to the future of the V-22 are a combination of economic, political and military considerations. It is well known that a coalition of industry, congress and covertly the Marine Corps are on one side of the argument facing the administration and the Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD on the other. Each side has invoked arguments either for or against the program in the areas of economics cost and utilization need requirements.
