The Navy Times is reporting the U.S. Navy may have learned some lessons from the design and production of LCS vessels like the USS Montgomery:
"The speedy, coast-hugging literal combat ships embodied shipbuilding mistakes that the Navy is trying to avoid. Critics said early versions were too lightly armored to survive combat. One version of the LCS had propulsion problems. Some of the ships broke down and had to be towed. Plans for a submarine detection system were scrapped."
