No, I just wanted to open a topic on the LCS. Any recent photos? All I have are pics of the launch :think:

:think: Does anyone have inside or accurate info of the USS Freedom's current status? The last thing Wiki says is there was a fire in April 07 that caused significant damage...

I was poking around on this subject while the Forum was down and I found this:

The description says this was taken in March of 2007. Looks like the General Dynamics side has given up and is now giving tours to the company executives of the skeleton of what was sopposed to be a high capability LCS...
