    It's an LPD, it doesn't have any. The entire interior is filled with landing craft and ground vehicles.

    VLS cells take up a ton of space vertically in the ship and there simply isn't room here.

      wheres the VLS cells?

      It technically DOES have the space for 2x8 mk41 cells, for quad packed ESSMs (64 total ESSMs) but no ships in the class have them fitted.

      why are we spending (*checks notes*) $2,000,000,000+ on each one of these? Like, do we really plan to launch an amphibious assault in the near future?

        Well if you plan to do any amphibious assault in the next 20 years you'll need to have the ships, training, and logistics to support it.

        If you suddenly decide in 5 years you want to do an amphibious assault and you don't have landing ships or an amphibious fighting force, it's going to take a LOT longer to get that established than your 5 year window allows.

        a navy takes a lot longer to build than an army, and you go to war with what you have, not what you want to build.

    There are none. It's garbage. Also, never listen to the Marine Corps on procurement. They still haven't realized they are supposed to be the light infantry / infiltration force to support Navy objectives and insist on trying to be a second army and tying up hulls we actually need for a war at sea for their Guadalcanal pt 2 LARP fantasy of amphibious assault still being a viable technique in modern warfare.

      >Marine Corps
      The marine corps procurement people are the only ones that do naval operations that aren't completely fricking moronic.

      Sub procurement is decent but they are fricked in the head for other reasons.

        Yeah, calling shit on the USMC procurement as a sailor is definitely a glass houses situation. Our shit is completely fricked sideways in every department outside of NAVAIR and even then it's not peachy just acceptable.
