http://www.businessinsider.com/littoral-combat-ship-will-be-modified-if-not-replaced-2014-7 The latest pile of crap to come out of the defense complex Interesting, so the ship of the future, that will be cheaper and better than the ships its intended to replace.... Is actually WAY more expensive.... With a very thin hull that has navy officials very clearly worried... Did not meet any performance goals.... and actually underperformed And according to the navy, is so under-gunned it can't properly defend itself Even the Navy says it doesn't seem to be interested in these overpriced junk ships in their current form, they want a total refit and redesign, or an entire new ship. I assume Lockheed should be writing a check back to the taxpayer for squandering yet more money. That went super well. Hmmm, under armored, slower than advertised, and hardly any ability to actually carry out the business of war. How the hell did this thing cost so much? So this is one of those ships thats supposed to be able to do work on land, on sea, and in air...it just can't go near anything armed with anti ship missiles....useful... So why are we paying for this pile of crap? Seems just like the F35, it would have been better to developed a few lines of purpose built ships at a lower cost. not this " Jack of all trades, blown up by small anti missiles " blunder we have.
