The U.S. Navy Wants 20 New Guided-Missile Frigates

The U.S. Navy has begun the process of acquiring a new guided-missile frigate, several years after decommissioning the last of its old Perry-class FFGs.

On July 10, 2017, Naval Sea Systems Command formally asked the U.S. shipbuilding industry to propose designs for a new guided-missile frigate that the Navy is calling the FFG(X).

The Navy wants to buy 20 of the ships between 2020 and 2030. The frigates would replace at least 20 of the Littoral Combat Ships that the sea service previously planned to acquire. The LCS has come under fire for being too lightly-armed for independent patrols in contested waters.

    The US Navy is an embarrassment, what with container ship hits on sleeping Destroyers and penises written in the skies of Washington.

    I didn't think the Navy would want any more frigates after the Perry-class. But, I'm hoping that it will have twin shafts instead of the single shaft of our past frigate designs. Plus, I'd like for them to have either the 32-cell VLS, like on the Burkes, or a 48-cell version like on some of these European designs.
