Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.
Yet another LCS has suffered an engineering failure. The USS Montgomery (LCS-8) suffered a pair of engineering failures three days after being commissioned and while transiting to its home
(1). The ship
is now headed to port of San Diego for repairs. Florida
It is worth noting that every LCS that has put to sea for more than a few days has suffered an engineering breakdown and some have suffered multiple breakdowns.
I guess that engineering stand down that the Navy ordered for the LCS program didn’t do much good.
