The Navy Wants to Retire a Ship That's Only Six Years Old

The U.S. Navy has unveiled plans to retire the first four Littoral Combat Ships, the youngest of which is only six years old.

The LCS program has been problematic for more than a decade, with the lightly armed ships coming in over budget and with technical problems.

The entire LCS fleet could eventually go on the chopping block as a new class of frigates comes online in the mid 2020s.
