And all the direct lobbying of the Biden administration on the Greek government has come to fruition.
(Regardless of the strong opposition of the Hellenic Navy)

It was another clause of the F-35 contract ?

Greece will have F-35 one day if:

1) Greece buy our piece of crap ships.
2) Greece give all their air defences to Ukraine.
3) ?

Greece are not bankrupt anyway ?

The LCS is now relegated to being assigned to mine counter measure duties in the Persian Gulf. Costing over $200 million a piece, these vessels will probably be the most expensive and sophisticated minesweepers ever.
To be fair, even if undesired/accidental, the return of destroyer-minesweeper(i.e. fast offensive ms) is a very powerful capability. As is such return of fast supply ships with full self-protection suits.
It shouldn't be underestimated.
