It highlights that the cost of procuring US systems is not cheap.

 

There is the beginning of some interesting work by Francis Tusa (in his Defence Analysis monthly) which suggest that the US sells its systems at prices which vary more than the cost-per-litre of Coca-Cola.

 

Of course, the level of support included in various headline sale values is rarely the same, but the unit price of sales of similar numbers and capability variants can be so different as to be inexplicable. This applies across all types of FMS - particularly interesting are the costs of Patriot to the various nations who have bought it, and comparing that with SAMP/T, for example.
