V-22 Technical Troubles.

According to the Pogo Blog, the V-22 is still having some technical troubles, related to getting ice of the wings and flying in clouds (due to lack of weather radar and ice formation in clouds). If this was an otherwise untroubled design, this might be a rather minor issue which one would assume would be quickly fixed, and perhaps it is just that. But, given decades of technical woes, any technical problem with the V-22 which is the Marines' highest procurement priority is worthy of notice.
