At $100,000,000 Apiece

40 MV 22s are missing

"The Secretary of Defense should order his Inspector General to find these 40 missing MV-22s. Each aircraft has a unique tail number with its assigned Navy bureau number. It also has a metal plate with its contract number. There are 10 MV-22s deployed aboard the USS Bataan, the rest are in the USA. Counting them should take just a couple of weeks, assuming they all exist. If they can't be found, a Marine Corps database tracks the chain-of-custody for all major items of equipment that lists the officer who signed for each aircraft.
Hopefully, the United States has not become a Banana Republic where major items of military equipment disappear and everyone is afraid to ask why."

Too late.
