Marinelink is reporting that LCS-1, USS Freedom, has completed “Rough Water Trials” (Seakeeping and Structural Loads Trials) off the coast of Oregon. A couple of thoughts.
Did we do these instrumented tests with either the National Security Cutter or a Webber class?
The Navy took quite a while before they got around to doing these and has already made a lot of decisions in the absence of test results.
