I know a few Marines that would strongly disagree with you. The arrival and departure profile from a hot LZ is way better than anything they have had in the past. I had drinks with some Marines that utilized the V-22 in Afcrapistan two weeks ago; they LOVE it.
Check the original range and outfitted troop load requirements against today’s performance....IF you can find it documented anywhere today.
My recall is that it was to have been 14 fully outfitted troops and 1500 miles.
I’m betting today’s actuals are less than half of that.
