Hmmmm..... and yet the Dept of defenses own fiscal year 2015 budget estimates show an aggregate cost of over $149 million per airframe (it doesn't
even breakdown whether that includes a motor or not), less advance procurement or any of the poorly documented and hidden top up bones the JPO keeps
throwing them. And lets not forget that the US DoD basically doesn't even conduct proper audits of what it spends so it doesn't even actually know
what they truly cost. I would hold off on the laughing Boomer, a so called 3-3.5% saving ain't anything to crow about,especially when nobody can do
anything but "estimate" the true cost at this stage. That and the fact that we are already almost 5 years late on the originally promised IOC with
more years to go. Yeah very funny,... with other peoples money.
