USN announces deployment of 6 LCS soon.  How many effective do you think there will be at a time?  Unmanned's appear to be doing well for their stage of dev.  Is this a last huhraah to stave off the new Connie's (FREMM mod US) with a mix of quasi disposable's and US hyper's as well?

That movie was Tomcat Porn years before Top Gun showed up!

 

The idea of the movie is just ridiculous but it was fun to watch because of it.  For a little kid like me at the time, it was simply awesome.

During peacetime, that should be good enough.   

 

Unmanned not necessarily an advantage as they require a mothership to control them.  That also makes them susceptible to detection via their communication emissions.

Think the good enough depends on the actual tasking.  Probably yes, else there would be more but, it leaves unanswered do we send 6 to have 2 working?  Unsure.  Not always does there need to be active links I'd suggest.

Depends where they are sending those ships and what class?  If its the South China Seas, they may probably be based in Singapore and rotate from there, allowing for more than one ship to run patrols simultaneously.    There are probably never enough ships to patrol that part anyway.  As such these ships should be Independence class as they have been proven to work in that area.    In addition to asserting US presence in the area, there are a whole lot of things going on such as illegal fishing and drug running.

If anywhere that's a good possibility; or maybe PG based and operate Red Sea; PG & Horn.  But, how much care must a nation use if operating in seas of another or of international waters and performing "law enforcement" duties?  To start with under what laws or codes would a charge or citation be levied in most / all of these cases?  In the case of enforcement of Navigation Acts, that's well established via UN treaty, a law I suppose yet clearly not national, and if I recall correctly it is based upon low mean low water mark.  One might suppose that gives rise to a dispute to some of SCS PRC claims due to the reef or atoll may not actually have had a mean low water mark.  It could well be there and yet remain subsurface.
