End of missile program may force littoral combat ship overhaul
from Navy Times
An Army plan to cancel an over-budget, poorly performing missile would cost the Navy's littoral combat ship one of its main weapons, leaving the surface fleet scrambling for something to take its place. Top Army acquisition officials want to cancel the Non-Line-Of-Sight missile, a small, short-range surface-to-surface weapon that was planned for use by soldiers on land and the LCS at sea. The missiles are too expensive and missed several targets in early tests, so the Army wants to cut its losses and has asked the Pentagon to kill the program.
