John Cavedo, the former JLTV program manager, said the average unit procurement cost
will be below the original 1399,000 acquisition report, when all the kits are included, in base year 2012 dollars.
With a targeted average unit procurement cost
of $550 million, the Air Force is planning to procure 80 to 100 LRS-B aircraft.
As an example, in 2010, the adjusted unit procurement cost
cap for the Littoral Combat Ship was $538 million.
MDA states that SM-3 Block IAs have a unit procurement cost
of about $9 million to $10 million, that SM-3 Block IBs have an estimated unit procurement cost
of about $12 million to $15 million, and that SM-3 Block IIAs have an estimated unit procurement cost
of about $15 million.
In FY09 budget terms, F-35 A unit procurement cost
(excluding development) is over $ 130 million, although the average for the US Air Force's 1763 aircraft is expected to be $ 96.
