Well not really. Just another kind of ship.
One of the things that convinced me to take US-41 down instead of I-75 was that I saw I had the chance to pass through Marinette, Wisconsin. Marinette is home to Marinette Marine which is one of the companies that is building Littoral Combat Ships (LCS).
While I'm not a huge fan of the design, I do like to see Navy ships and it's not often that I can see Navy ships. The ships built in Marinette are the Freedom Variant of the LCS. This is the one that looks like a proper ship, as opposed to the Independence Variant which is a Catamaran looking design.
