As commandos face new and complex missions around the globe, acquisition leaders are planning a slew of upgrades for Special Operations Command’s inventory of helicopters and tilt-rotor aircraft.

The modifications will include improvements to engine performance and survivability.

At Air Force Special Operations Command, officials are working to make improvements to the CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, said Col. Lee Anderson, AFSOC’s chief of operations training.

The aircraft provides commandos with long-range, high-speed vertical lift, he said.
