Manchester 433k 20 October 2017: Mobile, Ala. - The crew of Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Manchester (LCS 14), conducts a mast-stepping ceremony. PCU Manchester is currently undergoing the final stages of production in the Austal USA shipyard of Mobile, Alabama. LCS vessels are high-speed, agile, shallow draft, mission-focused surface combatants designed for operations in the littoral environment, yet fully capable of open ocean operations. As part of the surface fleet, LCS has the ability to counter and outpace evolving threats independently or within a network of surface combatants.
