|Quoting KevinSmith (Thread starter):|
Why is it that the Marines chose to designate their Ospreys as MV-22 and the the Air Force CV-22s. It occurs to me that the Air Force is going to use theirs for more special ops than cargo, and vice versa for the Marine Corp.
|Quoting KevinSmith (Reply 3):|
Still begs the question as to why the Air Force chose "C" when it is going to be doing "M".
