The Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is making its debut at the Singapore air show 2014 for the very first time. 

Two squadrons of the V-22 are currently deployed with  US Marine Corps in-country, following the initial deployment of the said aircraft at Japan base in 2012.

According to an Aviation Week report, the Japanese government recently announced its plans to purchase the aircraft in a bid to counter the buildup of Chinese forces in the region. As many as 17 V-22s could be purchased by Japan, along with six MV-22s requested by Israel under a Foreign Military Sales deal.

Boeing officials said that an unnamed third country has made solicitations about the tiltrotor aircraft, the report says it could be Middle East. The company believes there is a market for up to a further 100 aircraft in terms of international sales, additional aircraft for the US Air Force in the special forces CV-22 configuration and the US Navy’s requirement for a new carrier onboard delivery aircraft.
