Talk:Independence-class littoral combat ship

http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/archive/2011/March/Pages/NavyContractsSeenasVictoriesforAluminumShips.aspx The hulls share the same structural aluminum and geometry of extruded panels. They also run on the same model main propulsion diesel engines. Suppliers are providing the same aerodynamic fins, ride control components and software on both vessels. General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems serves as the ship systems integrator on both programs.
Agressive disintigration at the molecular level
I don't understand why the phrase "Agressive disintigration at the molecular level" is being used in the 'corrosion management' section of this article.
It basically looks like someone working for the contractor went into the article and re-wrote that whole section so that there is no reference to RUST.
LCS is the class, Independence/Freedom are Variants
The title of this article erroneously refers to the variants as classes in and of themselves. No official Navy source I can find does so, nor do the contractors working on the variants. Wikipedia appeared to have been incorrect in their nomenclature, so I started fixing it then got reverted for "nonsense". Here are my sources... http://www.navy.mil/navydata/fact_display.asp?cid=4200&tid=1650&ct=4, http://www.lmlcsteam.com, ... even the GD page which has "class" in the URL refers to it as "variant" throughout the actual text http://www.gdlcs.com/independence-class-lcs. I'd like to propose Wikipedia use the same terminology as everyone else and move this page to "Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ship". --Sam (talk) 15:04, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
