Questo aereo mi è nuovo;se possibile vorrei sapere cos'è il COD e perché ce ne è tanto bisogno?

Vital carrier cargo plane stands in way of Marines’ controversial tiltrotor.


Certain key officers want to replace the C-2 with the V-22 even though the latter was never meant for the carrier logistics role and lacks the appropriate performance.

Moreover, the V-22 is crash-prone, much more expensive to purchase than the C-2 and could require billions of dollars in modifications to Navy ships in order to be able to land on them.
