The Priciest Military Vehicles in The U.S. Arsenal Will Boggle Your Brain

Boeing T-7 Red Hawk – Cost: $262 Million

The Boeing T-7 Red Hawk is a next-generation military training aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) and its international partners. It is designed to replace the aging T-38 Talon as the primary trainer for USAF pilots, providing improved performance, safety, and efficiency.

The T-7 program is a collaborative effort between Boeing and Saab and has been praised for its innovative design and cost-effectiveness. With its modern design, single-engine, two-seat configuration, advanced avionics, and digital cockpit that supports fly-by-wire flight controls and advanced training systems we can’t wait for it to enter service with the USAF in 2023.


Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) – Cost: $395,000

The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle is a family of light armored vehicles developed by Oshkosh Defense and the United States military to replace the aging fleet of Humvees. The vehicles are designed to provide enhanced protection, mobility, and payload capacity compared to the Humvee while still retaining a high level of versatility and mobility.

The JLTV comes in multiple variants, including general-purpose, utility, and heavy-gun carriers, each with its own unique capabilities and specifications. Some of the shared features include advanced systems such as a digital backbone, modern suspension, and a powerful engine. What a collaboration it turned out to be to replace the Humvees!


Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey – Cost: $70 Million

Not many countries have aircraft suited for both vertical takeoff and landing and short takeoff and landing operations. The U.S. military has one of these in the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, which is used by the United States Marine Corps, Air Force, and Navy for a variety of missions, including troop transport, special operations, and search and rescue.

The special aircraft has been in service since 2007. And thanks to its unique design, with rotors that can be tilted to allow it to take off and land like a rotorcraft, it has the versatility of a helicopter and the speed and range of a turboprop airplane.
