I am getting confused bout our 2 pet pick on programs does this new engine produce more thrust thereby increasing thrust to weight ratios which also would help in the dogfight dept. Also to my other pet program I read in yesterday's USNI document to Congress buried along about page 40 something there is No request for an over the horizon missile so what the world is going on
it looks like what you read might be correct as now:

"But the unfunded list does include $31 million to develop an over-the-horizon, or OTH, capability for the LCS — an item left out of the original request ..."

mentions yet another issue of LCSs
"Another complication is that both the all-aluminum Independence and the steel-hulled Freedom-class LCS were designed to last only 25 years, rather than the 35 of a larger vessel. In the future, Moore said emphatically, “we should not design a ship with a planned service life of 25 years. It doesn’t make sense.”
(no, I didn't know)
that projects it's just ... unbelievable, unbelievable

now found (had to retype):

"10. Over-the-Horizon (OTH) Weapon System Development - $31M
Procures 5 test missile and 3 Inert Operational Missiles for
testing to support the outfitting of a second LCS class ship
with an extended range offensive cruise missile capability,
supporting continued planned lethality upgrades to the entire
class. This funding enables is [LOL not my typo here!] required
to keep planned lethality upgrades to remain aligned on both
LCS ships." at p. 4 of Document: Navy’s FY 2018 Unfunded Priorities List
