ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the subject of future fleet and task group operations and employment at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels, and on the operational design and employment concepts for the littoral combat ship (LCS) and other new design ships that will form future fleet capability. LCS might be modularly configured prior to deployment so as to bring a balanced range of shallow water and counter antiaccess threat mission capability to carrier strike group and expeditionary strike group operations based on current intelligence and threat projections. Assuming that the LCS is built with modern technologies that will greatly reduce crew-manning requirements. Will the size, mission endurance, and on-station requirements of the LCS call for a return of the tender, deep-draft, or large-deck support ship as one element of sea basing to effect modular mission change in forward areas, crew rotation or modular mission augmentation, necessary upkeep, systems repair, and resupply?
