    My guess is this does not bode well for their bid in FFGX

    Here's a video of four 1/350 scale LCS with upgrades including the Naval strike Missile from Norway. I hope they upgrade it to the Joint Strike Missile tht the F-35B will get and norway is buying so that the logistics are easier.

    That's a huge win for Norway as there will be about 50-60 US ships carrying 2 quad cannisters each, including the FFG(X) I believe now.

    You are right Jeff the lcs and FFGX will bother have nsm adds up to over 400 all total not counting reloads of course NSM/Jsm will be adapted to fit in side the 35 but not the B model I remember the B model weapons Bay is just too short as Far as FFGX is concerned AUSTAL is currently under investigation for "Financial Irregularities" so it could very well be disqualified from FFGX competition

    Lockmart has a better than average chance of at least a major subcontractor due to Freedom and if its chosen Fremm as they will be built in Wisconsin

    Interesting just watched the 2019 naval symposium the only 2 ffgx entrants mentioned were Austals and my personal favorite the Fremm no mention of the lockmart or Legend or the Barh Iron Soanish design could this be kinda tipping the Navies Hand Enquiring minds want to know
