Andrea Shalal-Esa writes that Japan may be close to a purchase of the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotors, which the Marine Corps has used in Okinawa since last year.

“They’ve started to see the capabilities because of the U.S. presence over there,“ Leanne Caret, vice president and general manager for vertical lift at Boeing’s defense division, told Reuters.

A team from Boeing and Bell Helicopter Bell Helicopter is visiting Israel this week to close a purchase agreement for an undisclosed number of Osprey transports.
