"Decommissioning of the remaining 26 FFGs is scheduled to occur prior to FY 2019. The LCS will replace the capacity and capability of the FFG 7-class."
Un-freakin' real. In the future, joint operational commanders will look up at the board, see an LCS and know it brings little or no value and keep it out of the way so it doesn't get itself hurt, or put an operation at risk. Unless that operation is so permissive-threat that it doesn't matter.
