    now
    Congress to buy 3 more LCS than the Navy needs, but gut funding for sensors that make them valuable https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2...funding-for-sensors-that-makes-them-valuable/
    :


    "Congress loves buying littoral combat ships, but when it comes to the packages of sensors and systems that make the ships useful, lawmakers have been less enthusiastic.


    In the 2019 Defense Department funding bill that just left the conference committee, lawmakers have funded a 33rd, 34th and 35th littoral combat ship, three more than the 32-ship requirement set by the Navy. But when it comes to the mission modules destined to make each ship either a mine sweeper, submarine hunter or small surface combatant, that funding has been slashed."

    and I quit

    It's like the Zumwalt all over again. That time it was guns without shells for them. Now it's a minesweeper without the sensors for it.

    To bad they didn't do this sooner still a crappy idea for a frigate lock mart actually has the upper hand though because if Fremm or this one wins guess who wins that's right both will be built in Wisconsin at lockmarts yard

    LCS Project is political engineering in action, the Navy pays not just with money (for vessels unable to deploy for years), but the Navy also pays by getting ridiculous surface-force structure consisting of: Burkes; Burkes; then Burkes; and more Burkes! (and Ticos being retired without replacement gosh, I mean a new design LOL not Burke FIII)

    LCS Project is the Pentagon's self-inflicted wound OK I stop now, actually right after reminding you Sep 21, 2018
