What Is An LCS?
The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is a US Navy vessel. They are relatively small surface vessels and are designed to operate near shore. Littoral combat ships are comparable to the corvettes found in other navies.
These ships have the capabilities of transporting small assault helicopters and assault forces with vehicles. The LCS concept emphasizes speed, flexible mission modules and a shallow draft.
