Navy May Not Deploy Any Littoral Combat Ships This Year


Recommended Posts

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – The Navy may not deploy any of its Littoral Combat Ships this year despite previous plans to deploy one to the Middle East and two to Singapore in 2018, due to a confluence of maintenance availabilities that has most of the LCS fleet sidelined this year.

Three of the Navy’s four original LCSs are in maintenance now, and four of the eight block-buy ships that have commissioned already are undergoing their initial Post Shakedown Availabilities (PSA), Cmdr. John Perkins, spokesman for U.S. Naval Surface Forces and Naval Surface Force Pacific, told USNI News. https://news.usni.org/2018/04/11/navy-may-not-deploy-littoral-combat-ships-year
