The LCS’ range has, again, been downrated. According to the 2015 DOT&E Annual Report,
“Based on fuel consumption data collected during the test, the ship’s operating range at 14.4 knots (the ship’s average speed during the trial) is estimated to be approximately 1,960 nautical miles (Navy requirement: 3,500 nautical miles at 14 knots) …”
That’s 1960 nm at 14 knots. Well, that gets the ship clear of the harbor, I guess, before it has to turn around to refuel.
