According to a couple sources: The complete kit costs just shy of 200,000 USD but the missile itself is replaceable and “only” costs around $75,000. So, 500 extra missiles per day would be around 38 million USD a day in missiles. In total, Biden has announced 800 million USD in military assistance to Ukraine on top of an initial 200 million which came on top of 1 billion prior to the war. So, if we just give them what they want, which is a fuckton of missiles, I guess we could realistically fit this into the fixed budget? I think we have something like 50,000 javeline missiles stockpiled up
Then again, if this wikipedia is too believed, even the missiles cost way more to replace at $175,000 per missile…
This may sound expensive, but tanks costs 3-6 million each so it’s a pretty cost effective way to get rid of them.
It’s worth noting that stinger missiles are much, much more affordable at around $38,000 each and I’m pretty sure that’s what Ukraine needs more of right now to keep the skies clear.
