Why Saudi Arabia Just Bought One of America’s Most Controversial Warships
Lockheed Martin has taken the first steps in fulfilling a massive naval deal it reached with Saudi Arabia last year.
As first reported by the Motley Fool, the Pentagon awarded Lockheed $481.1 million for “long-lead-time material” to begin construction of four Multi-Mission Surface Combatant (MMSC) ships. The MMSC ships are modified versions of the Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), which Lockheed also makes. Last November, the Pentagon had awarded the company a $22.74 million contract to work out the modifications that Saudi Arabia had requested. The latest contract indicates that the design has been agreed upon.
