    Why not station some Q-ships out there?

    So, the US Navy wants to use LCS Littoral Combat Ships to take care of the shallow waters in this World ?

    Well, notice that Pirates are operating in deep waters, not in the Littorals. So why buy LCS with a shallow draft ? Which is only about 40 percent less draft than a full sized frigate.

    So, let's rename LCS as DW CS: Deep Water Combat Ship ?
