The Lockheed Martin-led industry team launched the U.S. Navy’s 11th LCS (Littoral Combat Ship) Freedom-class variant combat ship, USS Sioux City, into the Menominee River at the Fincantieri Marinette Marine (FMM) shipyard,´.

Following christening and launch, USS Sioux City will continue to undergo outfitting and testing before delivery to the USN in early 2017.

The Lockheed Martin-led industry team (with Fincantieri Marinette Marine and Gibbs & Cox) is currently in serial production of the Freedom-class variant, and has already delivered three ships to the USN to date. The Sioux City is one of seven ships in various stages of construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine, with two more in long-lead production.
