US Navy completed acceptance tests of the next coastal zone warship

On August 23, the US Navy completed the acceptance tests of the USS Coronado coastal zone combat ship (LCS 4), ASDNews reports. Putting him in combat fleet scheduled for late September.

Comprehensive tests of the power plant, ship control system and auxiliary systems were carried out. During the tests, the ship brought the power plant to full power (continuous operation for four hours), self-defense systems from surface and air adversaries were checked, "high maneuverability" was demonstrated during sharp turns and speeds exceeding 40 nodes were achieved. Construction and testing of the ship were based on the experience of its predecessor - USS Independence (LCS 2).

Currently under construction are Milwaukee (LCS 5), Detroit (LCS 7), Little Rock (LCS 9) and Sioux City (LCS 11) (Marinette Marine Corp., Martinetta, WI) and Jackson (LCS 6) ), Montgomery (LCS 8), Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) and Omaha (LCS 12, are built at the shipyard of Austal USA, Mobile, Alabama). Wichita (LCS 13), Billings (LCS 15, Marinette Marine Corp) and Manchester (LCS 14), Tulsa (LCS 16, Austal USA) are in the pre-construction phase.

The coastal warships LCS are designed for operations in the coastal waters of the enemy, where submarines, mines and small boats pose a great danger. To counter the threats of various kinds of ships developed by the innovative concept of the Navy, which includes a modular replacement sets of equipment and weapons.

    Well, is it "completed the tests"! Let's take this piece of iron to the Syrian shores, where the Yakhonts will quickly and easily help complete his tests ...

    If I do not confuse anything, this project was recognized as unsuccessful.

    Why unsuccessful? A good boat to sail near the shores of some popuasii, in order to intimidate another Lumumba. He does not pull against a mosquito fleet and, especially, anti-ship missiles.

    Accurate to introduce him to our Yakhont! There is nothing more to add.

    So this is to reduce radar visibility. The Americans stick their stealth technology everywhere. Even where it is clearly not needed.

    ... demonstrated "superior maneuverability" in tight turns and achieved speeds in excess of 40 knots.

    The article is neither + nor -, since I would like to have such ships to protect our coastal zone. Similar speed was shown by Albatross and Lightning, but they are three times less. This one also has helicopters. A dangerous ship. Successful line-up.
    If we make an analogue of pr. 1239, modular configuration, displacement of 3000 tons, then it will be nice.
    The hovercraft is designed by FSUE Central Marine Design Bureau Almaz (St. Petersburg). OJSC Zelenodolsk Plant named after A.M. Gorky “for the Russian Navy 2 ships were built:“ Bora “(1989) and“ Samum “(1999).

    I recall that in the past year before last, shipbuilders battled the Navy command for a long time because of hull corrosion. Really eliminated?
