Light Attack Aircraft escort MV-22s...

Thanks to Dragoon for the link!!!


Why did it take so long to do this?  It's curious when you think about it.  Amos pushed the SPMAGTF-CR which was built around the idea of MV-22s conducting long range mission...missions that would reach too far for the AH-1Z to ride along, and it was too slow too.

My guess?

They pushed for the perfect instead of reaching for the doable now.

I'm not a fan of the concept and I believe that it makes a Marine Corps formation much less flexible and much too light..BUT!

If we're gonna do it then doing it right would mean getting a Super Tucano, AT-6, OV-10 II or some other light attack plane to provide escort and close air support.

This isn't rocket science.

Every person on this blog has at one time or another pushed for it but it took this long?

Oh well.  Better late than never I guess.
