    Will these stay afloat without falling apart like the previous ones?

    Lockheed Martin and Fincantieri Marinette Marine have delivered the future USS Sioux City, Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) 11, and future USS Wichita, LCS 13, to the U.S.Navy.

    I always wonder why an aircraft company is building ships. What the hell has happened to the old tried-and-true ones?

    Lockheed Martin’s Freedom-variant LCS is a highly maneuverable, lethal and adaptable ship, designed to support focused-missions in the areas of mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare and surface warfare. The Freedom-variant LCS integrates new technology and capability to affordably support current and future mission capability from deep water to the littorals.
