We've basically spent the cost of one Ford-class aircraft carrier In reality, $14B is a lot of money in the programming directorates of the services in the pentagon. And an aircraft carrier is a huge, huge deal. Just the upgrade of the virginia class subs almost cost the AF some F-35s in one appropriation/acquisition year. When you look at the entire DoD budget, I agree, 14B isn't earth shattering. But in every services' fight to the death POM cycle, that's a hell of a lot of bank.
