I am curious about this. So, we all know how much an individual unit costs.

But what I want to know is, how much did the program to do the research, development, testing, prototyping, manufacturing (making the factories etc) cost???

I could not find any information about this.

It does not have to be this one, for any howitzer program such as the Indian Dhanush 155mm howitzer would be fine.

Even a ball-park figure would be good enough. Like, what if a country wants to create it's own 155mm howitzer. How much will the government have to invest for this?

Just a random opinion here. It depends on the following:

1. Does the country in question have in the past produced an artillery gun?
2. The state of heavy industry in the country
3. The state of metallurgy in the country
4. The state of electronics
5. Competitiveness of industry
6. Industrial espionage
7. Will
