Defense News reporter Christopher P. Cavas was a rider on board USS FORT WORTH (LCS 3) as the Navy’s newest Littoral Combat Ship made its way from its Great Lakes birthplace to the sea. Cavas boarded the ship Aug. 14 in Montreal, Quebec, and got off Aug. 18 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The LCS is the newest type of warship in the U.S. Navy, which plans to buy up to 55 ships of two types. Although the third LCS, the FORT WORTH is only the second ship of the FREEDOM class, developed by Lockheed Martin and built at Fincantieri Marinette Marine in Marinette, Wisconsin.
