The Osprey will have completed 5 years of combat deployment in September
2012. The plane has been increasingly used for more robust tasks and
has fulfilled its promise. In the last deployment to Afghanistan, the
Osprey was used as a significant air assault asset and enabler,
participating in nearly 200 named operations.
In this video, the first Ospreys are seen arriving in Afghanistan. The
planes are seen arriving in late 2009 and in three short years have made
a significant mark on USMC operations in Afghanistan.
