More LCS follies
Just in case you weren’t sure, the LCS officially has some problems
In this piece from Defense News,
The LCS’s ability to quickly swap over from one module and mission (in other words go from sweeping mines to busting subs to carrying spec ops guys) is a moot subject. It seems the definition of quick swap is 30-60 days due to the logistics of the thing. And that’s in peacetime. This means that they have to come as they are to the next war, which isn’t with much.
Also, interesting side note is that USN is looking at swapping the 57mm peashooter out for a 76mm piece (which sailors thought was too small back in the 1980s!)
Anyway, the beat rolls on…
