LCS alternatives by Navy Matters Blog

Navy Matters Blog tackles the idea of what to do with the LCS.  This is a must read article because for better or worse it appears that we're gonna be stuck with the ship so we need to figure out what we're gonna do with it.

NMB hits some pretty good ideas that are worth considering.  The funny sad thing?  This generation of military leaders have given the military a mixed bag of weapons to fight the next war.  Remember this.  We went to Gulf War 1 and 2 and Afghanistan and even the current fight in Iraq and Syria with the weapons that the guys from the 60's and 70's designed.

What will we get from this generation?  The F-35, MV-22, LCS, AMPV and JLTV. Everything else we're buying is simply improving on what the previous generation gave us.

Somehow someway we're not as innovative as those that came before.  We seriously need to figure out why.
