The Army has decided to pull the plug on the troubled Comanche helicopter program. "With about $8 billion already invested in the program," the Associated Press reports, "the cancellation is one of the largest in the history of the Army."But killing the copter won't be cheap, the AP notes. "Although killing the Comanche project would save tens of billion in future costs, the cancellation decision is expected to require the Army to pay at least $2 billion in contract termination fees."THERE'S MORE: The Pentagons Department of Operational Test and Evaluation 2003 report on the Comanche is online here.
