Staying frosty on Lake Michigan

As noted this week in a release from Lockheed-Martin:

Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) 19, the future USS St. Louis, completed Acceptance Trials in Lake Michigan. Now that trials are complete, the ship will undergo final outfitting and fine-tuning before delivery. LCS 19 is the tenth Freedom-variant LCS designed and built by the Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)-led industry team and is slated for delivery to the Navy early next year.

But going beyond that, the images of the ship on trials in Lake Mick are epic.

No matter what St. Louis goes on to do in her career, you can bet warship nerds will still be clicking “save as” on these far into the future.
