Life may have gotten worse for the LCS. According to NavyRecognition.com, Russia's Derzky-class combatants are on the way – and the Russians may have gotten the concept right.
The good news is that the Russians will not get the Derzky until 2021, and they are only planning to buy 10 of these vessels. By then, the United States will have most of the Flight 0 littoral combat ships in service and those ships will have some upgrades.
The bad news for the United States is that Russia may have built the better LCS.
