Don’t Look Now, But The U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ships Are Actually Doing Stuff

Recommended Posts

It’s no secret that the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ships are a mess. The class of 35 lightly armed, near-shore surface combatants is mechanically unreliable, expensive to operate and largely still is missing the plug-and-play “modules” that are supposed to give the shallow-draught vessels much of their capability.

The shortfalls are so serious that the Navy already has begun decommissioning LCSs, despite most of the vessels being just a few years old.
