Navy Concludes Future USS Cincinnati Acceptance Tests

1 min read

The U.S. Navy has completed acceptance trials of the 10th Independence-variant littoral combat ship. LCS 20 or the future USS Cincinnati underwent performance evaluations of its propulsion plant, ship-handling and auxiliary systems last Friday in the Gulf of Mexico, the service branch said Tuesday. The Austal USA-built ship is moving to its designated homeport in San Diego after commissioning, joining other littoral combat ships.

“She’s well into her journey to be delivered to the Navy this summer and will provide needed and cost-effective warfighting capability to the fleet and the nation," said Capt. Mike Taylor, LCS program manager at the U.S. Navy.

The branch's Board of Inspection and Survey is preparing to conduct further assessments with the ship following the acceptance tests, leading to the vessel's scheduled commissioning in May.
