Welcome back, Richest fans! One of the important aspects of any nation’s military is the Air Force. The planes used can help provide a number of vital roles on top of battling in the skies. Yet when it comes to the exact model, is it better to buy cheap or go expensive? Well, that’s what we’re going to explore today. We’ve selected some of the most expensive and cheapest fighter jet programmes across the world. We’ll look into their history and various costs to determine whether splashing out is better or not.
Now for the spoiler paragraph. If you like surprises, we suggest you stop reading and watch the video multiple times. We start with the Mirage 2000 by French company Dassault Aviation. This jet became one of the most popular European-made models of all time. For the start of the pricey entries, there’s the now infamous model of the F-35 by Lockheed Martin. Looking to get an advantage over their U.S rivals, the then-Soviet Union created the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21. It even became very popular in India. Next is one of the most famous plane designs of all time, the B-2 Spirit by Northrop Grumman. Its incredible technology made it very, very expensive. Over in China there’s the Chengdu J-20 that could be expensive or cheap depending on the various, wildly different estimates. Then there’s the beloved Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. Even though the price of the jet kept rising, the U.S are really fond of this stunning aircraft. Finally, we’ll briefly look at the incredible price spent on the briefly lived Seawolf-class submarines.
