US Army Spending

According to StrategyMilitary, you can get a good idea of U.S. Army priorities by looking at how they plan to spend their money in the next year. Despite having one of the largest aircraft fleets in the world, the Army will be spending less than $700 million on acquiring new aircraft, or aircraft related equipment.  In contrast, $2.9 billion will go to new trucks, and $1.9 billion for new radios. Both of these items are taking a big beating in Iraq. Over $3 billion will be spent on armored vehicles, with almost half going to M-1 tank upgrades.
