(((sigh)))

So. Is it the crew being poorly trained, according to the Navy, which doesn't bode well for some careers one would think...unless they're fellow ring knockers, of course. But some senior enlisted, and maybe some junior officers who didn't go to Annapolis will be sacrificed for the greater good of the US Navy.

Or, is it a some what poorly designed/poorly built ship that needs to be rethought?

Fairly sure I know which it'll turn out to be... Whether it's actually the case or not.

What a drag.

A glorified PT boat and it doesn't work.
Functional beats fancy. Every time.

Seawater corrosion? Who woulda thunk.

What's surprising, and rather disappointing, is that I'm not surprised in the least. Not with this floating boondoggle...

Perhaps the USN should order British made Perkins diesels? forget obuma and his back of the line.

No need to go overseas.

Cummins makes very fine marine diesels.

They've figured out they f'd it up bigtime, and now are going to try to get their monies worth out of 'em...

Reading between the lines, some careers just came to a crashing halt...ring knocker, or no.

Yeah, it's time to straighten this out no matter who gets in the way.

Absolutely it is.

As a concept the LCS is a great idea. But this is getting redundant, the same problems over and over again.

It's time and past to end some careers, and get this entire program back on track. It's an embarrassment to the Navy, and to the taxpayers watching this play out like this.

I read that the LCS are using F35 parts.
