Re: A NEW USS Cleveland & ?Bellito?
I wonder if Cleveland will be 31 or 33? Both those hull numbers seem to be missing from the list, and using the odd ever (drives me crazy) method of designation between the Freedom and Independence Classes 31 and 33 should be Freedom Class.
Regardless, I am happy that a Cleveland will again join the fleet
I checked the internet and they say LCS 29 is the USS Bellito (the last unnamed Freedom), but it also has the Cleveland?
Cleveland is being built in Wisconsin, which would mean she is a Freedom Class LCS. The hull number will probably be LCS29. Plans are for Cleveland to be commissioned in her namesake city.
Sorry but that is all I could glean from searching a number of web sites.
the under sec nav announced a NEW USS Cleveland (hooray)..... It's an LCS (boo-hiss). Don't know which variant..... like it matters. I apologize to anyone who thought there was a new kit of a light cruiser coming......
