The U.S. Navy Littoral Combat Ships (LCS)

Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) are small surface combatant ships with specific, yet flexible, capabilities. The ships employ a system-of-systems approach through a series of modular mission packages, unmanned vehicles and an innovative hull design. Sailors assigned to USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) discuss what life is like on an LCS and the unique missions they hold.
