  • First four LCS ships to be put into early retirement!?!?!?!?!

    Reported today by Military.com that the first four LCS are being proposed by the US Navy to be retired early! Some never even deployed and were taken off the deployment list to be "test ships". I was never a big fan of the LCS class as built, but to get rid of ships so young sounds crazy. Seems like there is a lot more to learn about this situation.
    The Navy's construction budget for new warships is set to fall significantly in 2021.

      Can they take away the retirement benefits for the admirals that headed this program?

        More info about Little Crappy Ships...
        Future testing and training will be conducted on newer and modernized vessels.

          I think the biggest problem with the whole design is that the crew is simply too small to properly operate and maintain the ship. They can only operate it for the most part. Any sort of issue with a system aboard and it either operates without it, or it heads for a maintenance facility ashore in a port.

            Silly me. I thought they were announcing they were scrapping the whole bunch! Are they going to scrap the rest every time they hit ten years service? This should torpedo any move to use the designs for a new Frigate design.

              Wasn't this idea first reported back in 2016?
