LCS = "Little Crappy Ship"?

 Lots of questions about the LCS U.S. Naval ships built at a Mobile Alabama facility. Read this article in the TaskAndPurpose website.


"In 2018, the Pentagon’s Operational Test & Evaluation office found that “Neither LCS variant is survivable in high-intensity combat,” and in 2020 the OT&E concluded that the ships were significantly lacking in critical defensive capabilities but that the Navy “has accepted the risk of continued operations with a combat system that they have not operationally tested.”

Even so, the ships have continued to be commissioned despite earning the nickname “little crappy ship.”
