If we bin Ajax at this stage, that'll suddenly look like bloody good value.Both bigger than an MBT, Lynx is near enough same height/Width and just 3m shorter than the 188t WW2 Maus.
At £7-8bn for 400 vehicles it must be nice having a blank cheque budget, they make Ajax look cheap!
Yes, I was being facetious. Again.That‘s also a poor metric.
When did that happen?
If you’re going to be picky, Land 400 phase 3 hasn’t delivered anything into service at all yet, so it was intended to be a like-with-like based on projected cost at completion.The point is that the Ajax programme isn't delivering - well, Ajaxes at a regular rate and at £8m a pop. And, depending on whom you're talking to, it may not. So stating that Ajax only costs £8m apiece isn't yet true.
