The future littoral combat ship (LCS) USS Omaha is on its way to its homeport in San Diego, California, where it is scheduled to be commissioned in on 3 February 2018 at the city's Broadway Pier.

USS Omaha was launched on 20 November and christened on 20 December. The LCS vessel is a modular, reconfigurable ship with three mission packages for surface warfare, mine countermeasures and anti-submarine warfare.

On its transit to San Diego the vessel made a fuel stop at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, the navy's strategic logistics installation for routine, contingency, humanitarian, counter-narcotic and migrant operations in the Caribbean.
