Define 'cost'. A quick Google and Wikipedia give the cost per round of Brimstone as £175k (2015 prices). Unit cost of an M1 Abrams (chosen because it can still be had in quantity) is almost $9m apiece (2016 prices).I know what you mean. Earlier in the thread I mentioned an idea for an AFV with vertical launch Brimestones, which you could do palletised loading with. Such a fit seems entirely doable. Cost (as it always is), however, seems to be the unobtainable requirement.
So, you get around 50 Brimstones for one M1. Hellfire, according to t'internet is $115k apiece, Javelin is a little less. That's almost 80 for one M1.
Yes, you need a vehicle to put it all on, so one-for-one comparisons and my clumsy round-it-up maths don't give the full picture, but if the singular requirement is to be able to kill 'x' many MBTs (where 'x' is a large number) then the capability which can be acquired for the same money is markedly different.
Quite but either makes a hell of a lot of sense from where we are in terms of capability.Or if you fancy something a bit more substantial than PowerPoint, this was done six years ago:
