Re: Was the V22 tilt rotor the only candidate to replace the C2 ?

The V-22 has a higher MTOW and lower empty weight than the C-2 greyhound. So with the same payload the V-22 can carry considerably more fuel. The V-22 has double the max payload weight compared to the C-2 (9,070kg vs 4,536 kg). The V-22 also has a higher ferry range 2,230 nmi vs 2,000nm. https://en...
