Three independent defense offices separately concluded that program cost estimates are understated by as much as $38 billion and that the development schedule is likely to slip from 12 to 27 months. Discrepancies in cost estimates add to program risks and hinder congressional oversight


and


Further, expected cost per flight hour now exceeds that of the F-16 legacy fighter, one of the aircraft it is intended to replace


costs are up and real world useage price are now higher than the `oh so cheap` F16

the report is from the GAO. and really shows concern over the entire programme

A phrase involving rats, ships and sinking springs to mind.

Both denmark and norway i feel - since they both are allready benefitting from the inductrial aggreements with saab - something that the US has offred but has only been a 1 way street so far.

Wouldn't you say thought that adding information like this to the existing thread helps everyone have the relevant information to make the informed posts of the subject like this? Don't want to discourage you from postin Har but at the sametime one major problem the aviation forums and many others face is to many threads that could instead all be found under one root title etc. Let me know what you think and hopefully we can keep info like this together for everyone. Thanks EH!
