Like cars, helicopters costs can deeply vary depending of integrated NextGen technologies, equipment and options.
However, some official figures exists…
Here are for the #NH90 #helicopter :
According to a Senate report on the Financial Act 2014, French NH90 ‘Caïmans’ cost :
- Around 45 M€ for a Naval Warfare NFH[?] (equipped with ASW[?] / ASuW[?] missions systems)
Plus 2 torpedos MU90 (+/- 1.5 M€ each)
Actually, this is the direct acquizition price of each aircraft, but not their life-cost which record additional resources, such as development cost, spares & support or operating costs.
For example, New-Zealand NH90 program (which covers 8 NH90 ‘Warrior‘ + 1 airframe) recorded a total cost of 771.6 M€ @ mid-2013 (source: NZ MoD).
