Three Ways our Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) are Making Waves on Deployment
Here are a few examples of what this capable ship does while on deployment.
USS Detroit successfully completes joint exercise with USS Gridley
During deployment, USS Detroit’s crew completed a joint exercise of division tactics and gunnery exercises with Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Gridley.
Division tactics are a series of tactical shipboard movements directed by a designated junior officer, acting in the position of commanding officer. This gives junior officers experience handling their own ships and working closely with other vessels.

The missiles onboard LCS are part of a surface warfare capability package that can be added to LCS. With 40% reconfigurable hull space, LCS can defeat today’s threats and evolve to meet future threats.
In addition to this show of firepower, LCS 7 completed drug interdiction operations in the Caribbean Sea.
