How to save US ship building, and reach the 500 ship fleet

Long story short, the USN needs to begin heavily investing in smaller ships.


in WWII, we had subchasers, mine sweepers, landing craft support lights, etc.

multi-role small combatants.

for example relative to its time the Admirable class mine sweepers were much more capable than the avengers are relative to modern times.


so I propose a class of sub chasers, mine sweepers, and something similar to the LCS(L) in terms of relative cost, size and capabilities.


subchaser- various ASW UUVs, USVs, with SVTT, and 40mk4, possibly SEARAM or phalanx 75-100 ft long <500tons

Mine sweeper- various MCM UUVs, USVs, a box launcher for switchblade 600 drones, 40mk4 100-125 ft long <800 tons

LCS(L)- mk110, 40mk4,  SEARAM, box launcher for switchblade 600 drones, SVTT, and 2-4 NSM, either a bow mounted sonar or VDS. 150-175 ft long 1000-1500 tons

I'm sure Wargaming will forward your recommendation.
USN is planned out 8 years in advance on a lot of the procurement. 
They try to keep the framework rigid but can make modifications as the world changes needs/tactics/strategy/funding..
