    I suppose this would include

    22 X AH-64D: $1.4 billion

    6 X C-130J: $1.2 billion

    145 X M777 155mm Light-weight Howitzers: $650 million

    What's the rest for?

    More C-17s? Jaguar engines? P-8Is?

    Nah, they just spend it on the outsiders and hence makes news. But nothing compared to our northern neighbors, who spend four times as much as us Indians:nod:.
