I just came across these pic's on the net. Im a sucker for bad ass naval ships and this one is SWEET. I would love to be out on this one!
It is intended as a small assault transport with a variety of capabilities depending on the mission module installed. The ship is a trimaran design capable of over 40 knots (74 km/h; 46 mph), and will probably be delivered to the US Navy in September 2009.
