Re: None will twenty years service
Yes, there were designed to be also mine hunters - but it was not the main task, but only one of three alternative tasks. I often have the impression that you stress the mine warfare task and downplay the other two tasks. For sure, the USN needs ships to replace the old mine hunters of the Avenger class - and the frigates will be likely much better for the other two tasks (even with the added anti-ship missiles to the LCS).
