    Based on this new force structure arrangement, I expect a lot more SSC will be built aka Frigates.

    The USN tends to come up with fanciful concepts from time to time but with very little follow through beyond the initial idea. The immediate problem I see with this new structure is the dependence on unmanned vehicles acting as sensor nodes. The issues would include command and control associated with integrity of communication links and the security itself of the vehicles being commandeered by hostile forces.

    LOL it appears I'm on the verge of a defeat with my prediction (from last summer) of the Pentagon cancelling FFG(X):

    yesterday I saw twelve-hundred something million for the first ship in the current version of FY20 budget proposal

    (I don't bother with details now as it's just a- paper at this points, and the info would be like everywhere if it got approved)

    sounds like a realistic price for a modern frigate by the way

    well if "unmanned direction" was just PR stuff for Popular Mechanics, The National Interest, Scout Warrior etc.,

    then why not,

    BUT they're going to start throwing away billions for real,

    in a kinda similar way as spending 30+b for like specialized frigates (LCSs) without first thinking if a specialized frigate is or isn't a sound concept

    (then realizing it is not, but of course the Pentagon and the White House
