Navy Establishes First CMV-22B Squadron

The Navy stood up its first squadron that will field the CMV-22B in a Friday ceremony. The Titans of Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron (VRM) 30 will be the first unit to field the replacement for the Navy?s fleet of C-2A Greyhound carrier onboard delivery (COD) aircraft.

?This platform is our future and when you look at the nature of the future fight, we need that versatility, that flexibility that?s going to be provided in every subsequent squadron that transitions,? Vice Adm. DeWolfe H. Miller, the Navy?s air boss, said during the ceremony, held in San Diego.

Compared to the C-2A Greyhound, the CMV-22B has an increased range, more cargo capacity, enhanced beyond-line-of-sight communications, and offers quicker cargo loading and unloading, according to the Navy.
