78 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.2in.The CV-22 Osprey will be the next generation Special Operations insertion and extraction platform. The Air Force Special Operations Command will begin receiving the modified Marine Corps MV-22s in 2002, with full operational capability scheduled for 2010.
