it's tragicomic they've been churning out two LCS variants and a bunch of variants for each of Mission Modules (all dysfunctional for ten+ years), while now they're talking "commonality" in (nonexistent) FFG(X);That “Road block” is that they don’t want foreign made components. That’s not anything new. This would be a USN ship not a French or Italian ship. It shouldn’t face technical issues because a foreign maker can’t keep up with demands or has locked them out.
similar for time schedule: now they're talking so much about FFG(X) "maturity", while having ports full of LCSs
