According to a German organization article (https://www.dfg-vk.de/unsere-themen/anti-militarisierung/friedensorganisation-kritisiert-lego-kooperiert-mit-rüstungskonzernen)
and LEGO themselves the impressive Rescue Osprey is the latest in the ongoing world of cancel culture, you might recall that LEGO reduced advertisement for certain sets in the wake of the US protest for the horrific treatment of George Floyd (that people from all over the US political spectrum cried against), there were rumors they were simply removing all the sets and hence the LEGO community outrage until the company said it was only reducing advertisement. The Osprey is a wonderful aircraft and this particular set is clearly marked as a Rescue with six stickers.
The other thing that angers me is that there is already an example of Osprey in the LEGO City line being hilariously used by the crooks in a robbery (60209) and as a civillian cargo helicopter (60021). Perhaps the collaboration with Boing is their problem but are we going to renounce to Passenger planes in sets as well?
