V-22 Opsreys in Flying V formation

You’re thinking of the Osprey as a helicopter that can turn into a plane. It’s not. It’s a plane that can turn into a helicopter to land.

They never fly around with their rotors “up” like a helicopter does. When they fly slowly, they have their rotors at something like a 45 degree angle.

That means that any side gunners couldn’t fire forward, and those fragile, *vitally important* rotors are presenting their largest face towards enemy fire.

They were supposed to have a minigun in a chin turret originally, but that was going to be a *defensive* gun only; it was there to force the enemy into cover while they landed, not as a weapon to be used on the attack.
