U.S. Navy’s newest littoral combat ship arrives in San Diego


Reported to us by: DEFENSENEWS - Sat, 04/20/2019 - 11:20 - [CET]

The Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Charleston (LCS 18) arrived at its San Diego homeport April 19 after completing its maiden voyage from the Austal USA shipyard in Mobile, Alabama.

Lt.j.g. Jasmine Spencer has reported that prior to arriving in San Diego, Charleston officially joined the fleet March 2 when it was commissioned in Charleston, South Carolina. During the sail-around, the ship made port calls to Mayport, Florida; Little Creek, Virginia; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and Mazatlan, Mexico. The ship also completed a successful transit through the Panama Canal.

“I’m proud to say that the crew did a phenomenal job during Charleston’s maiden voyage, working many long hours to execute the voyage safely,” said Cmdr. Christopher K. Brusca, Charleston’s commanding officer. “To get Charleston ready for delivery, we’ve been away from our families for nine months, but during that time the crew maintained an infectious positivity throughout every aspect of bringing this ship to the Fleet.”

The ship falls under Commander, Littoral Combat Ship Squadron One (COMLCSRON ONE) control until the future LCS Mine Countermeasures Division is established on the West Coast.

“Charleston is a first-class ship with a first-class crew,” said Capt. Matthew McGonigle, commander, COMLCSRON ONE. “With Charleston’s arrival, we now have 11 littoral combat ships homeported in San Diego and we couldn’t be more proud of the hard work and positivity our LCS crews continue to demonstrate every single day.”

The LCS is the most advanced high-speed military craft in the world and is intended to operate in coastal areas around the globe. As a key part of the U.S. Navy fleet, they are highly maneuverable and configurable to support mine detection/elimination, anti-submarine, and surface ship warfare.

The trimaran hull form provides the ship with superior seakeeping, fuel efficiency, survivability and the capacity to carry a large, modular cache of weapons packages.

As part of the surface fleet, LCSs have the ability to counter and outpace evolving threats independently or within a network of surface combatants. Paired with advanced sonar and mine-hunting capabilities, LCSs provide a major contribution, as well as a more diverse set of options to commanders across the spectrum of operations.

BECAUSE OF THIS FACT:


High taxes prevented us from hiring the person who would have written the page you requested.

-OR BECAUSE OF THIS FACT-


Most of the news published here, you can read in tomorrow's newspaper,
or watch on your television news first in 2 - 3 hours. It's a fast robot to pick up all news fast.
Most often within 30 seconds from when the news first got released or published the first time in any part of the world.
So all news reports, from all news agencies, you have here within the same minute of release. Really quick!
We could adjust it to update every second (technically possible), but it will be considered overload of the news agencies websites, and not popular at all.
So you will have to be okey with one or two intel and news robot automatic updates per minute. Which is still the best news reporting on the market.
Considering the amount of sources we update on (over 100 https:// news channels) per minute. Everything automated 24 hours and 7 days per week.
The goal is to provide the best global overview. And to program the best free Internet tool to stay globally updated at all times.
Example: A nuclear plant outside Oslo, Norway, has a major accident. You want to know more about the situation.
Here you can follow many newsreports from several reporting sources like Reuters, AP, TASS, BBC and CNN to quickly and without to much trouble, asses more information about the accident and get a better overview of the whole situation fast! That's the greatness of this intelligence and news website.
And although some of our clients already work in intelligence agencies and have excellent reporting, they are not always at work having that access.
So when not at work and you wish to have a global update, you are of course welcome here, as the rest of us! Just type NSAROBOT.COM
Hold your mousepointer here in the grey window, or dot it, if you have touchscreen.
