    question @Jura. If the end result is based on one of the LCS hills Freedom or Independence would that in your mind be a make or break after all it would be continuing a derivative of one of the existing hull and ship lines.

    not sure I understand your question:

    according to the article I linked Today at 1:21 PM

    "There are five finalists competing to build what’s now called the FFG(X), using designs from existing warships — Austal USA in Alabama; Huntington Ingalls Industries in Mississippi; Lockheed Martin in Baltimore; a joint venture between Italy’s Fincantieri and Wisconsin’s Marinette Marine; and another tying General Dynamics/Bath Iron Works to Spanish shipbuilder Navantia."

    so a modified Freedom or Independence hull might win the FFG(X) competition, right?

    (if it happens, I'll loose)

    OK maybe I see your point, the question would be what's "modified" LOL but no problem here, I've predicted the Pentagon to cancel the FFG(X)

    gosh now searched what I got on Senator Warren ... inside Jul 12, 2017
    it's

    "Parts of Mabus’ legacy was defended by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Mabus, like others in the Obama administration, warned about the negative effects of climate change.

    “Under your leadership, will the Navy prepare for climate change?” Warren asked."

    (the reaction of Mr. Spencer to this was:
    “Both in terms of preparing our own bases and installations and preparing for the crises and the insecurity that climate change will exacerbate around the world?”
    Spencer answered, “yes.”)
