Total Acquisition Estimate for F-35 Rises to $406.5 Billion
12 Jul 2017 Bill Carey

"...In a summary of the SAR released on July 11, the Pentagon’s F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) provided cost estimates in both 2012 base-year and current—also known as then-year—dollars, with the latter metric containing inflationary increases expected over the duration of the program. The SAR estimates represent only U.S. costs, but take into account cost efficiencies gained from the contributions and procurements of F-35 partner nations and foreign military sales, the JPO said. The latest SAR reflects program cost, schedule and performance as of June 2016.

F-35 acquisition cost, a figure that includes the cost of research, development, test and evaluation, procurement and military construction, rose by $11.3 billion to $324.6 billion in base-year dollars. Total program cost, which adds operating and support costs over the life of the fighter, increased from $934.1 billion to $945.4 billion in base-year dollars.

The Air Force has reduced its maximum annual rate of F-35A procurement from 80 fighters to 60, which extended its timeline of planned purchases by six additional years to Fiscal Year 2044. The reduced annual buy and time extension drove the total acquisition cost increase, caused the uptick in unit recurring flyaway (URF) cost and also slightly increased average procurement unit cost (APUC) and program acquisition unit cost (PAUC) metrics, the JPO said.

In current-year dollars, the estimated URF cost of the F-35A increased from $100.6 million in SAR15 to $111.3 million in SAR16. The estimate for the U.S. Navy’s F-35C increased from $110.7 million to $112.4 million, and the U.S. Marine Corps F-35B from $122.9 million to $123.4 million...." [NO MENTION OF INCREASED USMC F-35B BUY BY 13]

That is a list of everything that has ever been found. It in no way represents what needs to be updated on each airframe as many of the fixes are folded into the production line as they are found.

Hi all.

Sorry for resurrecting this very old post :

http://www.dtic.mil/ndia/2010armament/T ... ayward.pdf (4 Mb) Public Release JSF 10-205 4/14/10


Is there any information available about a possible integration of the CBU-99/100 Rockeye II internally ? I'm asking this specific question because I was discussing (for a video game) a scenario where the F-35 would be used to stealthily drop leaflets while collecting ISR data over a reclusive dictatorial country...

And the PDU-5/B is a Rockeye II repurposed for leaflet delivery from high-performance aircraft : http://www.psywarrior.com/dissemination.html

Your link is dead... Use

https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovclou ... ayward.pdf

To answer your question, no, there is no info.

This Fall/Winter we expect the JPO to finalize the Block 4.1 plan and I am hoping UAI makes it. This will allow for an exponential expansion of weapons to be used while not requiring Block upgrades to do so.

This link mentions internal carriage for the CBU-97/105. Dunno if there's a difference with the CBU-99/100.

My point was that the resurrection of the topic THERE would have been more appropriate rather than a thread about official documentation.
