I like the names so far; homage to the classic early 1800's USN frigates.  It sounds like the Navy is finally getting a class right.

Sadly you just know that If they turn out to be a great success, the later ones will be named after failed politicians.

That thought did occur to me...

It seems that somebody finally remembered that combat involves actually engaging and exchanging fire, not gaily zipping around lobbing the occasional missile.

Your faith may be misplaced... 

As for class names, there was the dead admirals class, aka as the Ayatollah class or in print: the Kidd class.

Hopefully, those names will be soaked up by LCS'...

Im still annoyed they named one after one of my favourite aircraft carriers, Independence. I would rather have seen another one of those as a Ford than JFK.

Makes sense if it is AEGIS.

 

here is the Italian PPA cockpit  +ops center 

 

From about 40sec.

 

Is that a stealthy bulbous bow?
