Bell V-280 Valor; Bell - Lockheed Martin The V-280 Valor in design looks a lot like the Osprey. The V-280 is expected to sail at 280 knots and hence the name V-280. The top speed is around 560 kmph, which brings it pretty close to the osprey. In fact, there would be no surprises if the final production model was much faster. Top Speed: 423 knots [487 mph or 560 kmph]. Cruise Speed: 280 knots [322 mph or 519 kmph] Videos, Lockheed, New Aircraft, Fighter Jets, Osprey Helicopter, Military Helicopter, Helicopters, Helicopter, Usmc

"The tiltrotor technology that makes it possible, combing the vertical liftoff, landing and hover capability of a helicopter with an airplane's speed and long range, first appeared more than a half-century ago. But it took decades, billions of dollars in research and testing, and the lives of more than two dozen killed in early crashes to iron out the considerable kinks in the unique aircraft.

The V-22 Osprey tiltrotor's speed and fast-climb capability reduce the risk of flying in and out of hostile landing zones. Its hover is stable enough that a sniper can shoot on-target from its belly. Last year, a Marine Osprey crew plucked a downed Air Force F-15 pilot out of unfriendly Libyan territory, reinforcing its tactical value. Four of the revolutionary aircraft are in Cleveland for Marine Week, to show what they can do.
