F-22 Raptor in Alaska getting refueled.

Nonsense… the 2009 purchase price for an F-22 was 140-150 million per unit. With development costs they come at 340 million a piece
The current day purchase price of an F-35 comes roughly at 125/155/145 million for the A/B/C models, and with development you easily reach amounts of 280/250/300 million for the A/B/C models.

The numbers are rough average of all the articles I read over the past few months. The F-35 is one of the bigger number-juggling games of the US defense department. To foreign customer they’ll present prices in the 85-100 million range (claiming not to calculate the development costs) to sucker them in before the next round of delays and cost increases. And then they’ll say, hmmm yeah, well, they became a bit more expensive. Oh, you want to buy less of them now? Ooowkay, but that will jump up the per-unit costs up by quite a bit, and seeing you’ve invested all of your moneys, it would be wise to stick with us to the end. But here’s a tissue to hold against that bleeding artery.
