Navy tags LCS combining gear fixes at $8 to $10 million per ship

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The US Navy’s projected cost for fixing the defective combining gear on the Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ships is between $8 million and $10 million per ship, with the service and prime contractor Lockheed Martin each footing 50 percent of the bills, according to a new Navy report obtained by Breaking Defense.

All told, the overall costs for fixing the ships described in the report could total between $56 and $70 million. (Those numbers exclude ships being delivered to the Navy with the fix implemented as well as the earliest LCS that have not yet been green lit to receive the repairs.)
