CMV-22B comes on board CVN for the first time
25 Nov 2020 Richard Scott

"...A CMV-22B from Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron (VRM) 30 recovered to the flight deck of the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) for the first time on 20 November. Carl Vinson was underway in the Pacific at the time. A second CMV-22B operated onto Carl Vinson on 21 November. This aircraft became the first of its type to be refuelled on board a carrier....

...The main driver for the CMV-22B is to transport the Pratt & Whitney F135 engine – the powerplant for the US Marines Corps’ F-35B and the USN’s F-35C variants – direct from shore bases to carrier decks. Being able to put the F135 power module inside the tiltrotor is significant because the capability to transport the load internally extends the range out to 1,000 n miles. In addition, the CMV-22B will allow for direct delivery to amphibious ships as well as carriers."

NO this news not reported AFAIK IIRC (because I'm very interested). The Power Module has been drugged to an LHA before.

USN newsworthy photo of F135 Power Module being disembowelled (yes I know - it's that kind of day) from CMV-22B betta.
