ABSTRACT
The article discusses the reasons for the stalled inclusion of new warships and littoral combat ships (LCS) by the U.S. Navy. It mentions technological challenges and skyrocketing costs as the primary cause for the trouble in the proposed plan of obtaining 55 LCS by 2016. Development of the LCS, based on the concept of allowing it to play multi-operational roles, is considered an option for the program to survive. The bill allowing the program despite high costs was passed by the U.S. Congress.
