Back in their day, the O.H. PERRY class seemed a compromise ship with only one screw and a structure which could not take any hits without crumpling yet in comparison to their successor vessels, they were far better for their intended mission. I am sure many are still in good condition and it appears most are slated to be transferred to foreign navies.
While also overpriced, the USCG National Security Cutter is a much better platform than any stoopid LCS and if ordered for both the Coast Guard and the Navee, I am sure the cost per ship would be brought down to something reasonable for the taxpayer to spend. Even if $100M more than any LCS, these would be a vastly better platform and well worth the additional money. As it is, the taxpayer is getting nothing but a bunch of future aluminum scrap for the almost $400M they are spending per idiotic LCS we buy.
