    On Mat 28, 2019, last Tuesday, Lockheed Martin announced it WOULD NOT submit this, or any other full design for the FFX(G) program. This cuts the bidders down to four. The FREMM based design, the Hobart/F-100 based design, the Austal based design, and the Huntington Ingalls Legend Class Cutter based design. This was a surprise to me. At this point, I believe the Hobart or the Fremm would be the best, but now would rather see the Hobart because it is already an AEGIS based design. Surprises never cease.

    the USN has been commissioning aluminum scrap in the form of LCSs for about 10 years now,

    and the USN has been operating without lighter surface forces for about 10 years now,

    so I wouldn't be surprised if they canceled the FFG(X) and kept commissioning even more aluminum scrap in the form of LCSs,

    and I wouldn't be surprised if they kept operating without lighter forces for decades to come

    To be clear the the Freedom is a steel hull . The Independence variant is aluminum.
