Lockheed Martin is out with their newest combat ship for the U.S. Navy which it launched into the Menominee River in Wisconsin 2 weekends ago.
It’s name is the USS Little Rock and it was launched into the water using a risky slide procedure which had all in attendance holding their breath.
In a statement, Joe North, Vice President of Littoral Ships and Systems said:
“This future USS Little Rock will use interchangeable mission modules that empower her to face a variety of high-priority missions, from Anti-Surface Warfare to Anti-Submarine Warfare to Mine Countermeasures. She is ideally suited to navigate the reefs and shallows in the Asia-Pacific, as so well demonstrated by USS Fort Worth on her current deployment.”
