As it stands, the official estimate for a fleet of 65 F-35s is that they will cost $9 billion to buy and almost $37 billion to operate over the next 42 years. So, a total of just under $46 billion. If Boeing’s figures hold up, the Super Hornets would cost about half that.
***F-35s are designed to shoot down 10 planes for every one lost. That means that it would cost 5X times as much to use Boeing compared to the F-35 to achieve the same kill ratio.
As long as they have arabs and obamoids in the production lines, *anywhere*, things will be falling apart.
And Block 60 F-16 would be even cheaper.
You would think that a country with the land mass Canada and Australia have they would Select a larger fighter Air Craft like an F-15C or F-15E.
Both of those Aircraft have much greater range than the Super Hornet.Though at the same time neither of those Aircraft are Stealthy in their present configurations.
Though Boeing had planned on developing a stealth eagle a while back.
I’d love it if Boeing won this one!
