    I see , I had pondered the caliber being 145mm , however just checked Wiki and it is 155mm

    So - expensive

    For modern military contracts, they usually aren't just for a unit price to cover equipment (value of contract divided by number of units is not equal to the unit cost).

    They generally go for a set period of time (20 years or so) and include things like:
    • Training
    • Spares
    • Maintenance
    • Overhaul
    • Logistics
    • Infrastructure



    Of course, the M777 is top of the line and full of titanium, so it's not a cheap gun...
