More Navy Bumper Cars, my fav joke of a ship this time - 06/27/19 12:31 AM

Yep, a LittleCrappyShip, LCS 15 was undocking while being assisted by two tugs,

The tugs let go their lines and the LCS POS careened right into a parked (docked) cargo ship.

Go Navy Go. cuss

Sadly, the LCS didn't sink, Happily for the crew, but sad for the Navy and America.

Another useless POS excuse for a combat ship will eventually (when they learn to drive it) join the US fleet as a combat ship.

I still believe Admirals should be recalled, and court martialed for selling this criminal fraud to America. Contractors too, and the politicos that supported it should be prosecuted.

Just give it to Canada...if they will take it.

Ah, the aftermath would have looked like an Oprah show:

"You get a GOLAR (General Letter of Reprimand); you get a GOLAR; you get a GOLAR....everybody gets a GOLAR!"

I would say the tugs let go too soon. Lots of crazy currents to contend with and high winds.

Who calls for the tugs to let go? The tug commander or the ship commander?

As far as I know, the 'tug commander' or Harbor Pilot, is in command until the ship reaches a point where it is safe for the ship to travel on its own.
