USS Freedom

Pennant nr : LCS-1

Build : 2008 by Marinette Marine, Marinette, Wisconsin in the USA, nr ??

I had this one in my digital archives for quit a while now and every time I looked at her I saw the ugliness but I never had enough inspiration to write about her. Maybe because she is not only ugly but also pretty boring!

Anyway: in the end someone beat me to it: the esteemed Martin Leduc aka DieselDuck.

See his interesting website www.dieselduck.net and his excellent blog The Monitor for more things to read your time away.

Here is what he has to say about the USS Freedom:

And I couldn’t agree more!! Hear Hear!!

and Martin: you are also right about this:

She made it…and so did you!! (not that I’m saying that you are ugly!  ;-D  )

    I’ve tried to respond to this on several occasions and found that I’ve never been able to get my thoughts through. Lets see if simple is better.

    Finally got one through! I believe this looks like a bastard of a PT boat and a custom yacht.

  4. Victor M. says:

    It is an ugly ship. But, as a grey navy ship, does not form follow function? All those who put her down, even though they are not represented here, what right do you have to criticise?

    If you are merchant navy, are you saying that the corparate designed ships are more appealing?

    Also, referring back to the comments about the USS Long Beach and stealthy design, this may actually be a naval stealthy design. I have no clue about it. Its just a guess.
