Unit Cost of F-35s Delivered This Year Still Exceeds $206M

Despite claims that unit costs of the F-35 are dropping fast, each Lot 9 aircraft being delivered this year costs, on average, $206 million once engines, fixes and upgrades are included, or barely 7% less than those delivered in 2012. (USAF photo)

PARIS --- The average unit cost of Lockheed Martin F-35 fighters in the ninth Low-Rate Initial Production Lot 9 (LRIP 9) is $206.3 million, according to our analysis of all 46 contracts that have been made public for Lot 9.

This is just $16.7 million (or 7%) lower than the average cost of the Lot 5 aircraft ordered in 2012 – fully five years ago.

Separately, a direct comparison of Lot 5 and Lot 9 aircraft costs released by the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) shows that the cost of a “generic” F-35 has actually increased by $7.63 million over the same five years, 2012 to 2017.

The “generic” F-35 is a notional aircraft used to compare unit costs from year to year; it is the average cost of one aircraft of each of the three versions (F-35A CTOL, F-35B STOVL and F-35C CV) in the same production lot.

JPO’s figures show that, of the three variants, only the F-35A saw its cost decline, by a modest $3 million over those five years. The cost of both other variants increased substantially (see Table 2). JPO only compares airframe costs, and for reasons it has not explained excludes engine and other costs.

Both our detailed analysis of Lot 9 contracts, and the JPO’s own figures, contradict many public statements by Lockheed Martin and the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) claiming that unit costs are dropping with each successive LRIP lot, and that by 2019 the unit cost of an F-35A will have dropped to $85 million.

Most recently, JPO Director Lt. Gen Christopher Bogdan was quoted at a Dec. 19 press conference as again promising lower prices. “By the time the plane enters Full Rate Production in 2019, .... the price will be down to $80-$85 million for an F-35A, $110 million for a F-35B, and a $96 million for an F-35C.”

This now looks more implausible than ever.

As things stand, Lot 9 aircraft being delivered today cost $206.6 million on average, including their engines, fixes, retrofits and upgrades,

Furthermore, the JPO continues to award contracts for Lot 9, so it is likely the unit cost of Lot 9 aircraft will continue to grow. Four Lot 9 contracts have been awarded so far this year.

What all this shows is that neither Lockheed Martin nor the Joint Program Office have a real handle on their public statements about aircraft unit costs, which cannot be independently substantiated.

I. Analysis of 46 publicly released Lot 9 contracts

Our detailed analysis of all publicly-released Pentagon contracts shows that each Lot 9 airframe costs on average $153.9 million, and that each Pratt & Whitney F135 engine costs $23.03 million, which adds up to $177.02 million for a complete aircraft. Upgrades and retrofits account, on average, for an additional $32.07 million per aircraft, bringing the average cost of each generic Lot 9 aircraft to $206.3 million.

We identified Lot 9 contracts either because they were so labeled, or because they carried a Lot 9 contract reference.

These costs were calculated by adding all Lot 9 contracts awarded by the Pentagon, and dividing their total value by the number of Lot 9 aircraft (57) and engines (63, or 57 + 6 spares).

Table 1: Comparison of “generic” F-35 costs, LRIP Lot 5 and Lot 9 ($m)


(Source: D-A.com analysis of DoD data)

They include the cost of fixes, modifications and other post-delivery costs that are not specifically attributed to Lot 9, but which were awarded since September 2014 under a Lot 9 secondary contract reference (N00019-14-G-0020).

We have ignored any statements by Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney which have not been confirmed by Pentagon contract awards. We have also ignored the Nov. 2 announcement by the Joint Program Office of a $6.1 billion contract for Lot 9 aircraft as it has still not been confirmed by the Pentagon, and does not include the cost of engines.

II. The Joint Program Office’s elastic costs

Even using the JPO’s own figures, F-35 unit costs are continuing to grow. It should again be noted that the figures provided by JPO do not include the cost of the engine nor the upgrades and retrofits needed to meet contract performance standards.

In December 2012, in response to our analysis of the Lot 5 unit costs, the JPO provided the following unit cost figures for that contract:
-- $105 million for each of 22 F-35A CTOL aircraft for the US Air Force;
-- $113 million for each of 3 F-35B STOVL aircraft for the US Marine Corps, and
-- $125 million for each of seven F-35C CV aircraft for the US Navy.

Consequently, each F-35s ordered in Lot 5 costs $114.33 million on average.

In an undated press release on its F-35 website, Lockheed Martin quotes the Lot 9 unit costs provided by the JPO as follows:
The unit costs for Low Rate Initial Production Lot 9 (not including the engine) are:
-- F-35A: $102.1 million/jet
-- F-35B: $131.6 million/jet
-- F-35C: $132.2 million/jet

So, according to JPO’s ow figures, over the past five years (2012-2017) the average cost of an F-35 has actually increased, from $114.33 million for Lot 5 aircraft to $121.96 million in Lot 9 (+ 7%), instead of dropping, as JPO officials like to claim.

III. Is JPO muddying the waters on purpose?

For example, using the unit costs above, the total cost of Lot 9 –- which comprises 42 F-35As, 13 F-35Bs and two F-35Cs -- should be $6.203.4 billion, and not $6.1 billion as JPO announced in November.

It is also worth noting that JPO has begun to award contracts covering work on two or more LRIP lots, and has also announced “handshake” contracts that are not followed up by a properly formatted – and Congressionally-mandated – contract announcement.

There is no obvious reason for switching from the previous lot-by-lot contract award, except to make it impossible for outside observers to tally the cost of each lot, and thus work out the average unit cost of the aircraft by lot.

It certainly looks, in the absence of a more plausible explanation, as if the JPO is actually trying to muddy up the waters.


(Source: D-A.com analysis of JPO data)

As the above table illustrates, the cost of the “A” variant dropped marginally in 5 years, by just $3 million, while the cost of the two other variants increased substantially, by as much as $18.6 million for the most expensive F-35B STOVL variant.

If the $23.03 million cost of a generic engine is added, the average cost of a generic F-35 from Lot 9 increases to $144.99 million by the JPO's own reckoning.

Again, this disproves claims that F-35 costs are dropping with each successive production lot. We asked JPO chief spokesman Joe DellaVedova for an explanation on May 20, but have received no response by the time this story was posted on May 30.

IV. THE EVIDENCE: List of all Lot 9 contracts analyzed above:

We have listed below all publicly-released F-35 Lot 9 contracts, divided into three categories:
1.) 18 contracts awarded to Lockheed-Martin for airframe and related work;
2.) 6 contracts awarded to Pratt & Whitney for the F135 engine, and
3.) 22 contracts awarded to Lockheed Martin for Lot 9 upgrade and retrofit required to bring the aircraft to required performance levels.

In each case, to allow verification, we have added a link to the original contract announcement, on the US Department of Defense website. Their value breaks down as follows:
-- Aircraft contracts:
- Total value $8,772,906,313
- Number of Lot 9 aircraft: 57
- Airframe cost per aircraft: $153,910,637 per aircraft

-- Engine contracts:
- Total value: $1,451,093,899
- Number of Lot 9 engines: 57 (not counting the 6 spares)
- Engine cost per aircraft: $23.03 million (not counting the 6 spares)

-- Upgrades & retrofits:
- Total contract value: $1,672,179,061
- Number of Lot 9 aircraft: 57
- Upgrade costs per aircraft: $29,336,474 per aircraft.

Consequently:
-- The total cost of Lot 9 is $11,896,179,273, and
-- Total cost for each Lot 9 aircraft is: $206,280,347.
