Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron 30 (VRM-30) "Titans" is the U. S. Navy’s first Bell/Boeing CMV-22B Osprey squadron.  Based at NAS North Island, San Diego, California, the "Titans" were established to usher in a new era of logistics support for aircraft carriers.  The Navy is embarking on a new chapter in its history, transitioning from the C-2A Greyhound to an aircraft capable of providing efficient and effective logistics support for their many aircraft carriers.  The Navy's new CMV-22B utilizes the V-22 Osprey, a revolutionary tiltrotor aircraft combining a multi-engine design with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities to provide improved operational range while also enabling faster cargo loading/unloading compared to their existing C-2As.  Furthermore, it offers enhanced survivability as well as improved beyond line of sight communications from its predecessor, this powerful combination offers reliability for military operations around the globe.

 

The CMV-22B will provide the Navy with significant increases in capability and operational flexibility over the C-2A.  CMV-22B operations can be either shore-based, “expeditionary”, or sea-based.  The Osprey is a critical warfighting enabler, providing the time sensitive combat logistics needed to support combat operations.

 

As compared to the MV-22B, the Navy variant has extended operational range, a beyond line-of-sight HF radio, improved fuel dump capability, a public address system for passengers, and an improved lighting system for cargo loading.  The CMV-22B will be capable of transporting up to 6,000 pounds of cargo/personnel to a 1,150 NM range.

 

The USS Abraham Lincoln has transitioned from the C-2A to the Bell/Boeing CMV-22B Osprey.  When I embarked aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, our flight back to NAS North Island was on a Bell/Boeing CMV-22B Osprey from VRM-30 "Titans."
