All things MV-22 Osprey

Will the COD V-22 always recover on the CV vertically or is there planning to increase GW by doing run on landings down the angle?
I'm not sure how much traction that idea got. For landing, there was a roll-over speed associated with the cross deck pendants.

It doesn't really matter though... the limiting constraint for the COD mission is volume and not weight.

There's a little more volume to fill in a V-22, but after 1150 nm to the ship, you probably won't need a roll-on landing after burning all that gas.

A STO would be beneficial depending on what you're carrying back.

Yes, 40 extra years of service will require a lot more attrition birds, whatever the aircraft type. At least there's a live production line now if we plan for the future.

From the Hawkeye-Greyhound Wing on FB:

"Today VRM-30 “Titans” became active — the Navy’s first CMV-22 Osprey squadron. Although now only a handful of Plankowner Sailors, VRM-30 will grow over the next two years into a full, vibrant and Fleet ready squadron delivering critical readiness to our Carrier Strike Groups at sea. VRM-30 is scheduled to receive its first Osprey aircraft in June ‘20. Congratulations to the first CO of VRM-30 — CDR Trevor “Pee Wee” Hermann. His leadership coupled with the support of his Triad and motivated Sailors will ensure VRM-30’s growth and development remain on track!"

So first deployment coming in 2021? And OMG what is up with the homo erotic squadron patch - I would hope there were enough lessons from my old Squadron with Gay Bruce! Enough! No more Navy heraldry depicting gay naked dudes lifting shit! FFS!
