The MV-1 Vulture was built as an upgrade and local version of the V-22 Osprey. The MV-1 can be used for utility purposes, tactical airlift, search and rescue, close air support, counter-insurgency, field insertion and extraction, and field observation and territorial patrol. It can also take attack roles and is capable of using anti-submarine, anti-tank, anti-ship, and limited anti-air warfare abilities.

The MV-1 Vulture has doors on each side and a ramp at the back. It also has a crane for lifting vehicles and supplies.

AvionicsEdit

The Vulture has advance avionics and electronics on board.
