原文:

A future U.S. Navy combat ship completed acceptance trials in Lake Michigan over the weekend setting the stage for it to be commissioned in 2021.

Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) 21, the future USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul, passed several trials including a full-power run, maneuverability testing and surface and air detect-to-engage demonstrations of the ship's combat system.

Major systems and features were demonstrated, including aviation support, small boat launch handling and recovery and machinery control and automation. The ship is now set to undergo final outfitting and fine-tuning before delivery to the U.S. Navy.

LCS 21 is the eleventh Freedom-variant LCS designed and built by the Lockheed Martin-led industry team and is slated for delivery to the Navy early next year.
