Question (for anyone): "Stormbreakers cost about $200,000 each", "Italy's... receiving $150 million worth Stormbreaker guided bombs. This includes 173 Stormbreaker bombs." $200k x 173 = $34.6M, not $150M. What is the discrepancy? I get that such a contract would include a maintenance and support cost, but multiplied by a factor of four?

I think you misread this statement: "This includes 173 Stormbreaker bombs for use with the F-35 aircraft." Stormbreaker can be used with other aircraft too.

Glad to see that the Western Europeans are beginning to pay their own way after what? 70 plus years of getting a free ride on the back of American taxpayers? It can't come too soon.
