Bigger C-130s had done it 21 times, w/o using CATOBAR, on bigger USN carriers.
IMO, if AN-12s can be STOVLed with this method, then anything smaller like Su-34s & MiG-31s (with their Kinzhals) can be as well. And I have no doubt that they'll develop a V-22 counterpart as well:..the crew successfully performed 29 touch-and-go landings, 21 unarrested full-stop landings, and 21 unassisted takeoffs at gross weights of 85,000 pounds up to 121,000 pounds.
At 85,000 pounds, the KC-130F came to a complete stop within 267 feet,.. . .. even with a maximum payload, the plane used only 745 feet of flight deck for takeoff and 460 feet for landing. .. “The last landing I participated in, we touched down about 150 feet from the end, stopped in 270 feet more and launched from that position, using what was left of the deck. We still had a couple hundred feet left when we lifted off.” https://theaviationist.com/2014/07/16/c-130-land-on-carrier/
https://www.military.com/daily-news/2016/08/03/beginning-end-navy-c-2-greyhound.htmlThe change to a helicopter-style aircraft means more flexibility for the Navy. The Osprey doesn't require a carrier to be at "flight operations," which takes a crew of roughly 50 sailors overseeing the equipment required to land and launch airplanes, Navy officials said. It takes only five people to land the MV-22.
Other advantages of the Osprey: It can land supplies at night, something the Navy didn't attempt with the C-2. It also uses cargo containers, which can be offloaded by forklift instead of by hand.
The Osprey also has more lift power -- 10,000 pounds versus 8,500 pounds, Shoemaker said. The flight range is about the same.
It may be increased soon to give it longer "sea legs":
The Navy’s Osprey will add more than 200 miles to the Nautical range of the existing Corps' variant of the aircraft in order to extend its reach out to sea on-board aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. “The Navy's operational range requirement for the Carrier Onboard Delivery mission is 1,150 nautical miles. This is required to provide long range aerial logistics support of the Seabase, and reflects an increase of approximately 200 nautical miles to the baseline MV-22B,”...
The new Osprey, slated to first be operational by 2021, will perform the full range of missions currently executed by the C-2s. This includes VIP transport, humanitarian relief mission and regular efforts to deliver food, spare parts and equipment for sailors aboard carriers. .. In addition, the Osprey is being developed as a tanker aircraft able to perform aerial refueling missions; the idea is to transport fuel and use a probe technology to deliver fuel to key aircraft such as an F/A-18 or F-35C. The first Navy Ospreys will be procured in 2018 with some early “long-lead” items acquired in 2017, Lemaster said. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/new-us-navy-transport-osprey-will-reach-insane-280-miles-per-16334?page=show
