Military contracts are sometimes like that. Contracts are let to build some complex system..... & then someone gets a bright idea, "if they only did this or that, it would increase capability by 5%, 20%, etc". Then the contract gets inflated, often scrapping original designs & starting from scratch. After 15 years of development, there still isn't any product.
Other scenerios operate similarly.
