The Vertibird is REAL

More info on Game: Fallout 2: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

So I was at work today, flipping through some Defense briefing materials, when I came across a very interesting find. It turns out that everyone's favorite aircraft, the Vertibird, is actually real. The V-22 Osprey is the world's first production tilt-rotor aircraft:

The V-22 is being developed to perform United States Marine Corps (USMC), United States Navy(USN), and United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) combat missions. The V-22 design, incorporating advanced but mature technology proven in the XV-15 tiltrotor demonstrators, V-22 Full Scale Development (FSD) models, and V-22 Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) models, takes advantage of proven technology in composite materials, digital fly-by-wire flight controls, and advanced survivability and crashworthiness. A tiltrotor combines the speed, range and fuel efficiency normally associated with turboprop aircraft with the vertical take-off/landing and hover capabilities of helicopters. The tiltrotor aircraft represents a major technological breakthrough in aviation that meets long standing military needs.

For more information and pictures, check out this website. We're just one step closer to Plasma rifles, Frank Horrigan, and the Master.
