All nations account for procurement differently, and include / do not include different things in their acquisition costs.
Yes it makes it difficult to compare
$10.68B for aircraft and associated equipment/spares(munitions?)
$790M for Orland base infrastructure(main base)
$210M for Evenes base infrastructure (FOB)
$450M for management/implementation/administration
$770M budgeted for blk 4 upgrades
$870M for Joint Strike Missile integration (UK weapons integration is stated as $472M)
The stated operations cost is $19.5M per year per aircraft
$4.7B for aircraft
$1.58B for munitions
$2B for upgrades excluding blk 4 as delivered aircraft will be blk 4
$484M for infrastructure (corporal frisk) ?
$777M for infrastructure (the drive)?
$579M for transition
$2.9B for spares etc...
there's a bit of duplication there as its from multiple sources the infrastructure being the most obvious one but totals $12.3B so close
so again we are looking at
$ 7 B = 88 F35A's x $79M
$ 14 B = initial spares, munitions, simulators etc...
$ 1 B = management/admin/implementation
$ 1 B = Bagotville infrastructure
$ 1 B = Cold Lake infrastructure
?????? = infrastructure updates at FOL's and other bases
total = $24 Billion plus
$ 63B = operating costs 88 x $19.5M x 37 years or $34B for 20 yrs
$ 26B = operating costs 88 x $8M x 37 years or $14B for 20 yrs
$ 14.5B = operating costs 88 x $4.5 x 37 years or $8B for 20 yrs
interesting that Ellis Don got $12 million for Bagotville and only $9 million for Cold Lake. Is Bagotville bigger?
from $32B to $87B depending on 37 yrs or 20yrs and what operating cost model we fit into lol
