Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265 (HMM-265) was activated on September 30th, 1962 at MCAF New River, North Carolina, flying the UH-34 Seahorse. The squadron transitioned to the CH-46 Sea Knight in 1962 and saw combat action in Vietnam during the late 1960s and then again in the Arabian Gulf in the 1990s. In 2013, the squadron transitioned to the MV-22 Osprey and was re-designated Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (VMM-265).

Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey

Designed to meet a US military need for a VTOL aircraft that could carry combat troops, the V-22 Osprey was first flown on March 19, 1989. This multi-mission aircraft has an instantly recognizable appearance, and has been steeped in controversy almost since its inception. With its tiltrotor design, the Osprey can perform the same tasks as a conventional helicopter, but it has the speed and range of a turboprop aircraft. Several catastrophic crashes early in its service led the media to decry it as overpriced and unsafe, but the military disagreed and the aircraft has remained in service, successfully completing combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

New Ray's 1:72 V-22 Osprey includes a large number of moving features. The rotor blades spin and the engine nacelles can rotate from horizontal to vertical for take-off/landing configuration. Additionally, each rotor blade can be folded backwards and the entire wing rotated to place the model in the deck stowed configuration, just like the real aircraft! Finally, the rear cargo bay door is hinged and can be displayed in the opened or closed position.
