Up to $ 36 million per unit: The United States named the cost of anti-aircraft and strike missiles for the American fleet

The United States has the largest navy and spends huge amounts of money from the budget. The American edition of The War Zone provided information on the cost of some species weaponsinstalled on ships of the US Navy.


The publication writes that American warships are literally "stuffed" with expensive missiles. For example, the Ticonderoga-class URO cruiser has 122 launch cells to accommodate various types of missiles, other ships also carry a large number of different weapons.

The War Zone provides the latest information on the cost of these weapons to give an idea of ​​how much the US Navy spends on weapons. It is emphasized that the prices are for the weapons themselves and do not include any future costs of support services, modifications, upgrades or past development costs of the weapons. It is also noted that these are not final figures, the cost may vary depending on a number of factors.

Surface-to-air missiles, i.e. anti-aircraft (per unit):


Standard missile 2 (SM-2) Block IIIAZ - $ 1 (missile for US Navy Zumwalt class destroyers).

Standard missile 2 (SM-2) block IIIC - $ 2 (with active radar guidance).

Standard missile 3 (SM-3) Block IB - $ 11 (funded by the Anti-Ballistic Missile Agency (MDA) budget).

Standard missile 3 (SM-3) Block IIA - $ 36 (funds from the MDA budget).

Standard missile 6 (SM-6) in Block I and Block IA variants - $ 4.

Upgraded Sea Sparrow missiles (ESSM) Block I and Block II - $ 1.

Cruise missiles


Tomahawk (TACTOM) Block V - $ 1 (the cost of the base variant for engaging ground targets). The cost of upgrading Block V to Block Va Maritime Strike Tomahawk (MST) anti-ship missiles or Block Vb missile with the new Joint Multiple Action Warhead System (JMEWS), as well as to upgrade Block IV to Block V standard, is funded separately. The cost of one upgrade is $ 537.

Anti-ship missile Naval Strike Missile (NSN) - $ 2. (for 194, the US Navy allocated funds for the purchase of only 000 such missiles).

Harpoon anti-ship missiles - no data, the US Navy did not order the purchase of these missiles.

Light anti-ship missile AGM-176 Griffin - approximately $ 127. No purchase for 333.

Anti-submarine Vertical Launch Anti-Submarine Rocket (VL-ARSOC) - approximately $ 490. No funding is foreseen for 909.

The publication writes that the cost of some missiles may be quite surprising, but notes that modern naval warfare is a very "expensive undertaking."

    However, since the US defense budget is almost 3 (three!) Times larger than the entire expenditure part of the federal budget of the Russian Federation, there is nothing to worry about about the Americans. They will have enough for anti-aircraft and strike missiles for the American fleet for a long time. hi

      I do not know where the author gets such prices, but looking at the US Department of Defense's Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Request, I can confidently say that, for example, in 2018 SM-3 Block IIA was purchased for $ 18,4 million. An elementary search shows that for 2021 there is a budget for the purchase of these devices at $ 11,83 million. Others, just too lazy to look. hi

    We very often have the mass media creak - "Bread is getting more expensive, tomatoes are getting more expensive ... everything is getting more expensive, we are finished ...". At the same time, wages are growing by 10-12% per year.

    I have said many times that the high cost is a blessing. When they pay me expensive things, I pay without looking at my suppliers, give them bonuses, pay taxes and we all have money to buy gifts for kids and pay bills. When everyone thinks how to go through deshman, the product is bad and no one has money.

    So not 36 lamas, but twice as much can pay and that's good. And it's not just about rockets. Cutting is when effective managers ride yachts, the product does not fly and there is no money. And the prices of the American fleet are a working economy.

    Prices, of course, are high, but you need to understand that many, if not most, of the above are practically isolated prototypes of weapons, some have not yet been adopted for service, so the price is high. With serial production, the price will decrease dramatically as it is released.
    In 2021, the US Navy plans to adopt the modernized Tomahawk Block V CD, the Tomahawk Block Va (MST) variant will debut in two years.

    SM-2, SM-3, ESSM with active guidance - these are either prototypes, or just the beginning of production

    It's fine. However, Russian "calibers" are also not cheap. Experimental hypersound - probably also from half a billion. In the United States, by the way, they fully realized the problem, there are projects like Gray Wolf (though for the Air Force so far). Ours would also do well to upgrade the X-35.

      It's like the price of gasoline. For example, in Luxembourg it can cost twice as much as in Moscow, but the average salary can be five times more. Everything is relative to something.

        It makes no sense to measure up with bottles of vodka, somewhere they don't drink at all, someone doesn't use Scandinavian. Salaries differ at times, the work of engineers and workers is yes, but electronics, metals, modern materials - they cannot be cheaper here. The X-35 in 2010 cost about 15 million rubles (half a million dollars), the Otomat mk.2 costs about the same, but the Norwegian NSM already cost 2 million dollars (which is justified by Norwegian salaries). I’m more about what is worth thinking about when such products "with them" are worth or become cheaper.

    The Americans managed to make it so that missiles with an active head are only 2 times more expensive than conventional ones, well done. But Sparrows at $ 1.8M is something outrageous. Why are they needed? Better to put SM-2 instead of them at $ 1.2M - both cheaper and cooler.
