USS Milwaukee - LCS 5

USS Milwaukee - LCS 5 USS Milwaukee (LCS-5) is a Freedom-class littoral combat ship of the United States Navy. She will be the fifth ship to be named for the city of Milwaukee.

Milwaukee was successfully launched on the predicted launch date. As of 18 December 2013 the ship has only 80% completion. She will have vastly improved systems as well as mission modules compared to USS Freedom and USS Independence, the first two Littoral Combat Ships. Her keel was laid down on 27 October 2011. Lockheed VP Joe North has said that starting with the Milwaukee, the Lockheed LCS design is "done, locked and stable". This is after 30 or so changes from USS Fort Worth on top of hundreds of changes from USS Freedom. One of the improvements for Milwaukee are specially designed waterjets that replace the commercial versions used on previous Littoral Combat Ships. The launch and naming ceremony was held on 18 December 2013. Milwaukee is expected to be delivered to the U.S. Navy's fleet in Fall of 2015.
