How much does it cost to train a fighter pilot times how many pilots do you need?
You program an AI once and only spend the differential for improvements.
How many grand masters in Chess are there in the world? How many computers that has the capability to run the software to beat everyone of those grand masters?
AI for a fighter will be a magnitude higher in complexity, but we will get there.
Once we have the AI, putting out an airframe to maximize the capability is relatively simple. Airframe design is 20th century tech. AI is 21st century tech.

I'm thinking exponential order. With chess, you have a limit number of moves, but the AI need to calculate umpteenth moves ahead. With a drone AI, there would be more possible moves, but the they do not have to look too far ahead and when you have a swarm you get parallel processing.
But I'm not a software guy, so I have no idea the complexity or current capability.
