  • The LSC program will be a failure

    i had high hopes for the LSC program, but this new interview brought up a reason for zumwalt cancellations that i had not heard before...

    BIW wasn't able to produce Burkes on time while building zumwalts, so burkes were prioritized and the zumwalt order was cut down to 3.

    the LSC is supposed to be about the same size as a zumwalt if not a bit larger, that means it will likely run into the same issue meaning the first of class will never actually be laid down, or the class will be cut to relatively uselessness in numbers the same as the zumwalts were.

    This was a tough, but correct decision, IMHO. The Burke class was a proven and reliable class while the Zumwalt remains unproven.

      It was interesting listening to the audio, and how the captain says it can't commit in the same way the Burke can(nor should it be compared to one), simply because of the number of crew... primarily because of sustainment and fatigue. I do like his point about these ships not being the first person to call in 'presence missions' escorts and port calls. If you want a stealth ship, don't let people see it.

        i mean, have some burkes come to the fleet late, or waste billions of invested money to have a lame duck class of ship?
        maybe a compromise putting a hold on future ships, or alternating the yard's focus like 3 zummys and then 3 burkes, then 3 zummys etc could have been done to keep a decent pace of burke output while still capitalizing on the investment made into the zumwalt class, and if major issues with the first 3 were discovered to invalidate the entire design/class they could then cancel them, or just keep building them as the class proves itself and use that operational experience improve the newer ships creating a block II or block Ia, etc.
