05/21/2019- Builder’s trials began over the weekend for the LCS 17. The future USS Indianapolis headed out to the waters of Lake Michigan Saturday, assisted by a pair of tugs. These trials test the ship’s performance under a variety of operating conditions. Upon the successful completion of builder’s trials, the vessel will then undergo acceptance trials in preparation for delivery to the Navy. LCS 17 was launched in April of 2018 and is expected to be commissioned later this year.
