Independence-Class Litoral Combat Ship


The Independence-class littoral combat ships (LCS) are a class of small surface vessels operated by the United States Navy. Designed for operations near shore (littorals), these ships are part of the Navy's strategy to have more versatile, modular, and nimble vessels for missions including mine countermeasures, anti-submarine warfare, and surface warfare. The Independence class is noted for its distinctive trimaran hull design, which provides exceptional stability and speed, and allows for the operation of small boats and unmanned vehicles in various conditions.
