Lockheed Martin-led team delivers future USS ‘Detroit’
Tuesday, 16 August 2016 16:55

A Lockheed Martin-led industry team has delivered the seventh 118.6-metre Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), the future USS ‘Detroit’, to the US Navy.

The ‘Detroit’ is the fourth Freedom-variant LCS delivered to the US Navy by Lockheed Martin and is scheduled to be commissioned in Detroit on October 22.

The Lockheed Martin-led team is currently in production of the Freedom-variant, with six ships under construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine (FMM) and three more in long-lead material procurement. Lockheed claims the ship's modular design enables the US Navy to achieve increased capacity and capability at a fraction of the cost of other platforms.

The Lockheed Martin-led LCS team is comprised of Fincantieri Marinette Marine, naval architect Gibbs and Cox, and more than 500 suppliers.
