Some interesting "bang for buck" comparisons in these numbers:
  • 9 x CH-53K King Stallion - $1.7 billion
  • 12 x F-15EX - $1.5 billion
  • 30 x AH-64E Apache Attack Helicopters - $825 million
30 Apaches for less than half the cost of 9 Stallions. Someone's having a laugh.

I believe the Apaches are largely re-manufactured airframes instead of new builds

Wait for the howls of protest about 42 A-10s being grounded.
