So, would a Littoral Combat Group Have a ...

...Littoral Combat Ship?
The Navy deployed a new ship pairing – a destroyer (DDG-51) and an amphibious transport dock (LPD-17) – to test out a new concept that could supplement amphibious squadrons and surface action groups as a formation in future operations.

USS Somerset (LPD-25), USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG-108) and Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force (SP-MAGTF)-Peru deployed together as Littoral Combat Group 1 in November and December.
Well, of course not. Over a decade after the commissioning of Hull-1 and 13 total in the fleet, they are still next to worthless.

What a mockery. What a sham. What a huge waste and blot on our Navy.
