USS FREEDOM LCS-1

Postby RussF172 » 22 Aug 2012 12:23

Read recently that the USN are deploying USS FREEDOM LCS-1 (first of the new mono hull Littoral Combat Ships) to Singapore as part of the major build up of US forces in South East Asia (including Darwin). She will deploy late this year or early 2013 for approximately 10 months. A little bird told me there is a good chance she will come to Sydney for the Fleet Review in October prior to her heading back to the US on completion of her deployment. She will be interesting to see up close.

Sorry Martin, I think you'll find that that is USS Independence, the tri-hull alternative to the mono hull USS Freedom.

She is the second LCS.
