Littoral Combat Ship Christened Independence (LCS 2)

Austal USA’s 127 metre trimaran Littoral Combat Ship, LCS 2 Independence, has been christened in front of over 1000 guests and dignitaries during an official ceremony held at its Mobile, Alabama shipyard.

The General Dynamics LCS Team – within which Austal is ship designer and builder – christened the state-of-the-art combat ship on October 4 on the waters of Mobile Bay, with Austal USA’s recently launched 113 metre catamaran built for Hawaii Superferry alongside.
