    U.S. Navy successful test firing of the ship’s Surface-to-Surface Missile Module SSMM

    More than 10 years after the first boat was commissioned, they have just successfully tested the launch of a Hellfire missile. The whole development is moving so slowly that I wonder whether the life of the hull can last the distance.

    Good question. In fact the whole design of the LCS was meant to operate in the littorals like in the Persian Gulf. I think the confidence in the crewing structure and that the vessel is capable in performing to expectations is low and hence the reluctance to task them for missions.

    Another answer could be they simply are outgunned ny even the Irainians which from what we were told is exactly what they were made for
