Osprey Aircrafts Arrive in Brazil to Support Unitas Amphibious
By Dialogo November 20, 2015Will they be there for only a little while or permanently, incorporated in the Navy of Brazil? The priority should be in investing in peace, and not in war preparation. Training is always good with very positive rapport, especially at this time. This game is really good because all the doll figures in it are on the same machine.
This past Saturday (14), three MV-22 Osprey aircraft from the United States landed in Rio de Janeiro to begin the Operation Unitas Amphibious 2015 military training exercise. Completing the longest flight of its history, the MV-22 travelled the equivalent of 11,417 kilometers, from United States to Brazil.
After a stop in the city of Belém (PA), the aircrafts arrived in Rio to join the Unitas Amphibious exercise on November 17 and 18, at Ilha do Governador, and on November 20, at Marambaia Island.
The MV-22 Osprey has been employed to support troops in combat since 2007 and is the main assault support aircraft used by the U.S. Marine Corps.
With double the speed and five times greater range than that of a helicopter, the vehicle uses two engines positioned at the ends of the fixed wings which allow vertical landing and take-off.
Led by the Brazilian Navy, through the Marine Corps Command, Operation Unitas Amphibious 2015 brings together Marines from eight countries: Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, USA, Mexico, Paraguay and Peru.
