The US Navy‘s New Pirate (Bernie) Catcher
Here are some recent photos of the LCS-2 (to be named the USS Independence )
.ATT000443Here she is at sea trials running at only HALF-power at 43 knots. Note absence of bow wave. Also turns tightly too.
Allegedly this turn was also done at 43 knots… and from the look of the small bow wave, she’s still in the turn.
Note the absence of any sign of her ‘heeling over’ even at that speed.ATT000566And then there’s the massive helo deck big enough for a CH-53 and the huge storage capacity under that flight deck and the size of the flight deck.

ATT000381She’s aerodynamically designed and kind of strange looking.
Is this beginning of a new design in ships? These should be able to clean up the pirates off the coasts of Africa.ATT0006810This is the U.S.S. Independence (LCS-2) It is a Triple Hulled, weapon-Laden Monster. Here she is under construction…

    Yep, I like that, it did make me smile. Hopefully it will be a good weapon in the US Navy’s arsenal for the purpose of doing good things.
