The Lockheed Martin-led industry team delivered the seventh Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), the future USS Detroit, to the U.S. Navy on August 12.

The future USS Detroit is the fourth Freedom-variant LCS delivered to the U.S. Navy by Lockheed Martin and is scheduled to be commissioned in Detroit on October 22.

The Lockheed Martin-led industry team is currently in full-rate production of the Freedom-variant, with six ships under construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine (FMM) and three more in long-lead material procurement.

The Lockheed Martin-led LCS team is comprised of shipbuilder Fincantieri Marinette Marine, naval architect Gibbs & Cox, and more than 500 suppliers in US 37 states. The Freedom-variant’s steel monohull is based on a proven, survivable design recognized for its stability and reliability.
