John Richardson laid out a strategy for a new large surface combatant that uses some of the tricks the Navy is employing on the FFG(X) program: looking at existing hull forms as a base for a tailor-made future combatant that can evolve over time. https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/navy-league/2018/04/12/navys-top-officer-lays-out-aggressive-new-cruiser-replacement-strategy/
