USS Independence (LCS 2): One bad ass boat!

Posted in Cool Stuff, Videos by MrAngry | June 13th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

The USS Independence (LCS-2) is a 418 foot high-speed trimaran that can achieve speeds of around 60 mph and is the United States Navy small assault transport. With a large flight deck it is capable of offering full support to two SH-60 Seahawk helicopters, multiple UAVs, or one large CH-53 Sea Stallion-class helicopter. The trimaran hull design not only makes it very stable but gives the Independence enhanced maneuverability as well as a presence that tells the bad guys to simply run away and hide… I love this thing.

    Just because they say it can do 60 mph doesn’t mean it can’t go faster. You would be surprised how fast it can go when the situation calls for it. For instance, the George Bush,her propeller shafts are rated at 200,000 hp EACH.

  2. Heaps more photos and videos of this superfast ship at http://www.austal.com – that’s the company that designed and built it
