WHAT TO DO WITH THE LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP

The Navy’s Flop Could Be The Coast Guard’s Godsend
By Harold Hutchison

The Littoral Combat Ship has been a lightning rod of controversy. While it has cutting-edge technology, it has been very expensive (at least $400 million per hull), and it has been lightly armed. The Navy is planning to halt construction after thirty-two hulls, evenly divided between the Freedom-class and the Independence-class designs. The vessels are also lightly armed, presently working with a Mk 110 57mm gun and a number of .50-caliber machine guns. The armament suite seems to be closer to that of the Bertholf-class cutters in Coast Guard service than to a real warship.
