The Department of the Navy has announced a $1 billion contract to supply new cargo ships to the Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force.
The US Navy is set to deliver the new MCS-7L, the newest MCS, to the Navy and Marine Corps in 2019.
The MCS 7L is the only major U.S. vessel to be produced using a hybrid modular construction.
The Navy’s contract was awarded to Litton Marine Systems in December 2019, and Litton is a wholly owned subsidiary of Marine Systems Corp. The contract is expected to cost the Navy between $4.4 billion and $5.4bn.
“This is an important milestone in the Marine Department’s ongoing commitment to commercialization and sustainment of the MCS platform, and our continued focus on the critical need for robust shipbuilding,” US Navy Under Secretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Lt.
Ryan M. Anderson said in a statement.
The MCS is the U.N. programmatic successor to the MV-22 Osprey and MV-15, both of which were retired in 2017.
The MV-21B and MV+ were decommissioned in 2021 and 2022 respectively, while the MV6M was decommissioning in 2021.
The new MSS-7 is the first U..
S.-made modular ship to be constructed using a Hybrid-Modular Construction (HMCC), according to the Naval Sea Systems Command.
The HMCC is a modular construction method that allows the design of a ship from the ground up, allowing it to fit into existing shipbuilding practices and deliver a new class of ship to a shipyard.
The MV-7M has a crew of eight, with three of those crew being assigned to the crew cabin, according to Navy news release.
The new MV-07M is expected in 2021, and the MV7M is slated for a 2021 delivery.
The Navy’s first ship, the MV 7M, is expected for service in 2022.
