Yesterday I stopped by the future USS Milwaukee and grabbed some updated photos. With the LCS program in the news lately I would like to point out that this is not some abstract decision. It will have a devastating affect on the local economies where the ships are built should the cuts stay in place.
It is obvious the LCS class vessels need improvements to their weapons systems. This can be accomplished within the existing designs and does not require years of further research and untold billions of dollars to be spent by the Navy to start from scratch; as some are calling for.
