02/07/2020- One more locally built warship has been delivered to the U.S. Navy. LCS 19, the future USS St. Louis is the latest combat ship coming from Fincantieri Marinette Marine to be delivered to the Navy and representatives with Lockheed Martin say the Freedom-variant LCS delivers advanced capability in anti-submarine, surface and mine countermeasure missions. It was designed to evolve with the changing security environment and upgrades to the design are underway in response to an increase in near-peer competition from large nation states. LCS 19 is the tenth Freedom-variant LCS designed, built and delivered by the Lockheed Martin-led industry team and will be commissioned in Pensacola, Florida this summer.
