May be different engines.

We could then sell this platform to others who can not afford the P8.
Yes - lets modify it (+labor/administrative costs) with more expensive equipment & engines, adding in the cost of re-certification of everything due to the modifications.

That ought to bring the cost per aircraft up to match the P-8. Normal UK-MOD procedure.
