Description: The Large Unmanned Surface Vessel (LUSV) is a US Navy program aimed at delivering a fleet of at least ten vessels by 2025. The vessels might be equipped with a vertical launching system (VLS) to support larger manned surface combatants in warfare operations. The LUSV ships are expected to perform combat missions in support of the fleet entering in danger zones firing missiles and going back for reloading performing the role of firepower magazine. The program is expected to start in 2020 with two vessels being ordered with an estimated tag price of $300 million per vessel including design and development costs. The US Navy plans call for the commissioning of two vessels per year beginning in 2025.
