Watch these Marines Fast-Rope out of this MV-22 Osprey

June 21, 2014

At a recent exercise, these infantry Marines fast-roped out of a hovering MV-22 Osprey.  They used to say it couldn’t be done – that the force of the downdraft made it too risky. Well these Marines are the latest to prove the naysayers wrong.

Check back with War on the Rocks in the coming days to see why these Marines are practicing this capability. Spoiler: it is very very cool.
