The keel has been laid for the US Navy’s 11th Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) at Austal USA’s shipyard Mobile, on 20 September.

The vessel will be named USS Savannah (LCS 28) on its completion.

This is one of five Independence class LCS vessels currently undergoing construction at Austal USA, with five additional ships in pre-production planning.

The LCS is designed as a fast, agile, focused-mission platform able to operate in near-shore environments and undertake open-ocean operations. The vessels are capable of supporting forward presence, maritime security, sea control and deterrence missions.
