Rolls-Royce has signed a $700 million production contract with
the Naval Air Systems Command to produce 370 AE 1107C-Liberty
engines for the US Marine Corps' MV-22 and the US Air Force's CV-22
Osprey tiltrotor aircraft.
The five-year contract coincides with the first combat
deployment of MV-22 aircraft that took place this month, as reported by ANN.
The production agreement includes engines for 148 aircraft plus
74 spares, for deliveries going forward to 2013.
Dennis Jarvi, President Defense North America for Rolls-Royce,
said: "This agreement represents another significant step in the
development of this revolutionary aircraft. Rolls-Royce engines
will provide the power, speed and range our customer requires to
meet their mission."
