Delay on Japanese Ospreys

Delay on Japanese Ospreys 26 September, 2018

Japan has requested the postponement of delivery of MV-22B Osprey platforms. The dispute with the Saga region, where the platforms will be deployed, was shown as a reason for the request. It was announced that the negotiations with the local administration of the region on Kyushu Island is on progress. 


Tokyo ordered 17 Bell-Boeing MV-22B Osprey in total. Japan will pay 332.5 million USD for the supply of the first five-piece order for the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force. The first five shipments are scheduled to be completed in the autumn of 2018.
