    Increasing a weapon system’s reliability, or probability of mission completion, from 85 percent to 90 percent might sound simple, but it comes at a significant test cost. Testing would require the system to fire 10,507 rounds to verify that the new system provides the 5 percent increase in reliability over the system it was replacing. By contrast, testing would require 6,807 rounds to verify that the new system had the same reliability as the system it was replacing. (Image courtesy of USAASC and Joshua R. Barker)
