LCS is a Frigate!

As reported across numerous Internet web sites, the Navy will change the LCS designation to FF, meaning frigate.  I said the Navy would engage in a PR blitz and this is the latest volley in the PR campaign.  Does the Navy really believe that changing the designation will fool anyone into believing that the LCS is suddenly and magically a modern frigate?  Heck, you’d have a hard time making the case for the LCS as a legitimate corvette by today’s standards!

If they're going to make up designations that don't apply, they should have just called it a BB, meaning battleship, to make it really sound impressive.  If we had 52 battleships, that would give the Chinese pause.

Honestly, you’d think this was another humor piece on my part but, I swear, you can’t make this stuff up!

LCS:  “Don’t be about it, talk about it.”
