    Tilt rotors are expensive for now, especially Osprey. Though it is a really versatile aircraft, it would not serve us well enough considering the costs of operation and maintenance. IAF is already having the idea of getting other weird aircraft in its arsenal as well like the amphibian BE-200 from Russia; which is a first time for the IAF, since it was expected out of IN to come to such a procurement decision.

    Adding V-22 would only complicate our already ZOO of aircraft fleet.
