As quoted in todays paper
"Defence expert Francis Tusa said yesterday Britain pays around £1.5million for a pair of air-launched Storm Shadow bombs.
Each sea-launched Tomahawk sets us back about £900,000 a throw. And Mr Tusa, editor of Defence Analysis, said Tornado jets cost £40,000 to be in the air for an hour."
Gulp, I am not being funny but £900,000 for something that goes bang is alot. Maybe they could get something cheaper like, an "Airbomb" repeater rocket with some T.N.T. Strapped to it dropped out of a glider, reckon that wil save £899,990 pounds.
Please feel free to add your suggestions in saving blighty some wonga!
