In a yard period late last year, Freedom acquired two large oblong metal boxes on its transom, on either side of the stern gate its crew uses to launch and recover boats. The sailors call these “buoyancy tanks,” although they look almost like a baby’s water wings for the pool — or, yes, there is a more explicit anatomical parallel to be drawn. Think about it.
I wonder how that impacts the stern RCS - you know, when LCS is "running away" as per the CONOPS? Just saying ... he has more on what this means for LCS-3 here.
Sims would not be pleased.
.... and yes; LCS-1 now has a ship's song - they can play it while UNREP'n every 48hrs.
