Wasn't LCS supposed to be analogous to the Army's Stryker - Cheaper, more numerous and faster than more traditional platforms? And isn't it also similar in that it has wound up more expensive and therefore less numerous than traditional platforms? If so, why not cancel the program outright? If we're going to keep LCS at all, I like the idea of keeping both classes if we can actually create meaningful competition between the classes/designs/contractors.

What does anyone else think?

The commentary in US Naval Institute Proceedings continues to provide very mixed reviews.

What can you expect from something designed and built with
GREED being the operating factor governing the job? What do you think is going to happen to these Naval sell-outs that approve all this shoddy work? 1/2d
