    isn't it too old? why not develop any thing based on 777LR or 787 which will be much modern and cover long distance / stay longer in air, it will be always better.

    Its to act as a single replacement against older C130, C160 and other civilian converted Air frames .

    Cannot be directly pitched against C130J.

    It has much bigger payload, has very short takeoff and landing requirements. It also as traditional air refuelling probe.

    Looks great but still remains unsafe and overpriced.

    Yes I get that. There is a wide range of advantages it offers due to it rotatry design but other options are more reliable when it comes to safety (due to high crash ratio) and procurement cost.

    This is quite evitable itself that after so many years after its introduction, the aircraft has not able to get any foreign contracts other than USAF and Marine Corps.

    Israel tried to get their hands on it, but ultimately cancelled their order due to budgetary constraints.
