    There is nothing worse than trying to coordinate multiple aircraft in the same combat zone. Even though the Osprey will not hover, it is operational, do we really need to budget trillions more of tax payer dollars just so the Army can have their own toy – all ya need is green paint, spray an Osprey and you're there. You lower the cost of Osprey, spare parts cost go down too. Have centralized flight schools. Long list of savings.
