    I believe the issue is not so much the platform (LCS) but the mine hunting suite it was supposed to be equipped with. Basically they got the boat built faster than the weapon system it was supposed to be equipped with. Virtually any vessel can perform mine hunting duties (obviously some much better than others) - on the proviso that it has been laid/out equipped with the proper equipment to do so. This hasn't happened with the LCS, in fact most of its modular suites including mine hunting are running behind schedule. Its a bit like building an aircraft carrier when you have no carrier capable aircraft to put on it!

    And some proper Frigates.

    When will the U.S.N wake up and except the truth that the LCS has been a failure? The LCS program needs to end so we can look at alternatives.

    Folks who try to say that all Mongols, or Jews, are bad, are just wrong. They aren't real Christians, or Jews.
    stop, he'll have nothing left to say!

Christians also fight against ISIS...and KKK. Early French writers spoke out against KKK and later the Nazis. Mongols really kicked some ass.
    Stop it stop it you're seriously cracking me up!

    Don't worry folks, the Iran nuke deal will remove any need to ever use our minesweepers.

    What the... oh, your channeling Talib el'0, aren't you?

    Well, let us know when you need an Exorcist.
