Neutrally estimating the cost of the Russian invasion with large language models

How much does it cost (in equipment) to invade Ukraine?

We asked three local language models and the results were suprinsingly consistent.

A language model that would only identify themselves as "del" for privacy reasons estimated the material cost of just the equipment is approximately $105.62 billion. The breakdown according to del:

# Given the rough estimates for each type of military equipment, we calculate the total cost.
# The numbers represent the estimated costs in USD.

equipment_costs = {
    'APV': 500000,             # Armored Personnel Vehicles
    'vehicles_fuel_tanks': 100000, # Vehicles and Fuel Tanks
    'tanks': 4000000,             # Tanks
    'artillery': 3000000,         # Artillery Systems
    'UAV': 200000,               # Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
    'MLRS': 2000000,             # Multiple Launch Rocket Systems
    'planes': 20000000,           # Planes
    'helicopters': 15000000,      # Helicopters
    'cruise_missiles': 1000000,   # Cruise Missiles
    'anti_aircraft': 3000000,     # Anti-Aircraft Warfare
    'special_equipment': 1000000, # Special Equipment
    'warships': 300000000,        # Warships/Boats
    'submarines': 2000000000,     # Submarines

# Quantities of each type of equipment from the graphic.
equipment_quantities = {
    'APV': 13991,
    'vehicles_fuel_tanks': 16065,
    'tanks': 7279,
    'artillery': 11948,
    'UAV': 9507,
    'MLRS': 1050,
    'planes': 348,
    'helicopters': 325,
    'cruise_missiles': 2124,
    'anti_aircraft': 776,
    'special_equipment': 1971,
    'warships': 26,
    'submarines': 1,

# Calculate the total cost.
total_cost = sum(equipment_costs[equip] * quantity for equip, quantity in equipment_quantities.items())

Then we asked known smart model,

                            Okay, I can make some rough estimates based on typical costs of military equipment, but please keep in mind these will be very approximate.
Planes: 348 x $50 million = $17.4 billion
Helicopters: 325 x $30 million = $9.75 billion
Cruise missiles: 2,124 x $1 million = $2.12 billion
Vehicles and fuel tanks: 16,065 x $500,000 = $8.03 billion
Tanks: 7,279 x $6 million = $43.67 billion
Anti-aircraft warfare: 776 x $10 million = $7.76 billion
Artillery systems: 11,948 x $500,000 = $5.97 billion
Special equipment: 1,971 x $1 million = $1.97 billion
UAV: 9,507 x $50,000 = $475 million
Warships/boats: 26 x $500 million = $13 billion
MLRS: 1,050 x $3 million = $3.15 billion
Submarine: 1 x $2 billion = $2 billion
Estimated total: $115.31 billion
Again, this is a very rough estimate based on assumptions about average costs. Actual figures could vary significantly depending on the specific models of equipment and prevailing prices. But this gives a general sense of the immense scale of financial losses in military equipment based on the numbers provided, likely well over $100 billion.

Rounding it out we asked google's new baby who apparently hates freedom.

                            Okay, based on the image you sent and acknowledging the limitations, here's a rough estimate of equipment losses based on reported numbers and typical unit costs (all figures are estimates and should be treated with caution):

Equipment Category	Estimated Cost per Unit	Quantity Destroyed (Image Data)	Estimated Total Cost
Tanks	$5 million	7,279 + 11	$36.4 billion
Aircraft	$25 million	348 + 0	$8.7 billion
Helicopters	$10 million	325 + 0	$3.25 billion
APVs	$500,000	13,991 +20	$7.04 billion
Vehicles	$100,000	16,065 +46	$1.6 billion
Artillery Systems	$1 million	11,948 +43	$12.4 billion
Cruise Missiles	$1 million	2,124 + 0	$2.12 billion
UAVs	$1 million	9,507+22	$9.53 billion
Warships/Boats	$50 million	26 + 0	$1.3 billion
MLRS	$2 million	1,050+1	$2.1 billion
