Comment(s):

Israel:

Expressed an interest in the MV-22 but actual purchase depends on negotiations with the US related to the total defence aid package to the country.

Japan:

Ordered its MV-22 in three batches, five in 2015, four in 2016 and four in 2018.

United States:

The first order covering the purchase for 39 CMV-22Bs - US Navy new COD replacing the C-2A Greyhound - was awarded to Boeing on June 29, 2018. The same contract covers 34 MV-22Bs for the USMC and one CV-22B for the USAF and included four aircraft for Japan. Work to be completed by November 2024.
First deliveries of the CMV-22B are expected 2020. Based on US Navy requirements the range of this Osprey variant has been increased compared to the USAF and USMC aircraft.
