Thank you for sharing the link, I'm not a big fan of these Littorals...I wish the Navy would procure a proper Frigate to replace the FFG-7's.

Yea I dont care for them either, I posted the link just because I thought the launching prosses was cool.

Just think..... how many things could go wrong with thousands of tons of steel hitting the water all at once!

With all the problems , Another Littoral Combat Ship

Contract calls for whatever quantity of them we have ordered.

Unlike the Zumwalts, where we have canceled 80% of the order before even launching the first.
