Just the prototypes from both series...but I suppose it showcases the low value USN now places at these vessels.

Meanwhile, FFG(X) is now slated to cost over a billion each, and be about the same displacement as a Block I Burke, nearly double the old OHP

They will in fairness make pretty awesome yachts if you fancy sailing in the pirate infested waters off Somalia.

 

They should haul one out the water, and park it in front of the Pentagon. Just to drive the message home of the cost of hubris.

Put them in a dry dock, and make them the mandatory retirement home for those responsible. Admirals, senators, representatives.

Excellent idea! The only thing I might change would be to have the LCS  actually on the Potomac River itself and have your individuals be responsible for keeping it afloat.

They have spent the last 15 years doing that, so they must be well practiced by now. :)
