The Navy had an opportunity last decade to regain its credibility and to save us all this waste by killing LCS when it had the chance, but no … too many people had too much of their ego tied up with it. Better or worse, we are stuck with it and its wedontneedfrigatessowewillcallitafrigate spawn FF. Too many people had no concept of sunk cost – both financial and political capital wise; they had to splite their eights and double down.
Phib takes a look at the continuing dumpster fire that is the LCS.
The Navy has been fooling with this for a decade and a half, and had ships in commission for almost a decade. And they still cannot perform any one of their supposed missions.
Seriously, this makes the JSF look like a model of acquisition excellence.
