Seriously?  $73,000,000? It's a pretty good helicopter, but that's really not worth it.

My explanation is that the cost per unit is that high because there are only a few Tigers produced, so development costs take a large part in the price per unit. The other is that price level dropped to around $30,000,000. Still a lot of money..
