That had better be sub-orbital at that price and I'm NOT kidding. It better be at that, just for starters.
I don't know what they figure makes an airplane worth 100 million dollars but this taxpayer says nothing designed to do battle...and as part of that, perhaps be LOST in battle....should cost anything even remotely close to that unless it's capabilities FAR FAR exceed what the public knows about.
This cost garbage has gotten so far beyond logical, people don't even question it anymore. It's not even a question to look at the physical thing and ask what could possibly be within that aircraft worth THAT much to produce? Ummm... Logic test fail in my mind...
