The cost per unit went up because they drastically cut the number of planes ordered. Just like the F-22.

Wasn’t it because the cost to develop each unit was much higher than originally estimated and so were forced to cut down on the number of units the budget allowed for?

We don't need a lot of F-22s.

Each of the 6 F-22s we bought can shoot down 4,311 MiGs. Anything left alive on the planet can be wiped out by the F-35, which is capable of carrying nuclear weapons, landing on a public tennis court, or a carrier, and can easily be operated by Single Moms, members of the LGBTG Community, Minority groups including Latinos and Negroes. It's later models will come with lunch and X-box remote controls. It is so stealthy that pilots and ground crews can sometimes not find it.

If a country has to ask how much an airplane costs, it shouldn't have one.
