I was around when the LCS concept began to take hold, when the buzz words were “Asymmetric Warfare”.
Looking back on it now, we had no idea what asymmetric warfare meant and how Naval forces would be employed; all we knew was we had and understood current OPLANS, and that they weren’t working in contests that were not mass on mass, I thought then, wow we’ve been here before and don’t remember the lessons from Vietnam.
Someone isn’t entirely sold on the LCS concept…
Sorry, I’ve been reading and commenting on LCS at a few places today. I suppose I could write about it here, but I’ve written a dozen times before what a crappy program it is.
