Something Cool I Saw On TV! - The V22 Osprey

Sup all, i saw this strange but awesome vehicle on the Discovery channel today, and if i'm honest i was completely amazed! take a look at these images below:

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

One of these babies costs $67 Million!
With a max speed of 290Mph & it's range of 800+M It's an excellent troop/armament transport vehicle as you can see.

The aircraft can switch between a fully enabled combat aeroplane to an exac chopper in under 20 seconds!

If this isn't amazing; i don't know what is...

Let me know what you think!
