The Inside Story of How the Navy Spent Billions on the “Little Crappy Ship”

Recommended Posts

How many man-hours were wasted manning these ships and how many man-hours were lost because we cannot maintain our functional ships? ~ Tony

~ "Scores of frustrated sailors recall spending more time fixing the ships than sailing them."

~ "Work aboard the USS Fort Worth. There was “no break, no reprieve, just increasing daily tasking,” one sailor said of their time on board."

Littoral combat ships were supposed to launch the Navy into the future. Instead they broke down across the globe and many of their weapons never worked. Now the Navy is getting rid of them. One is less than five years old.
