    Iran did only buy 60 missiles, but they reverse engineered it and now produce their own variants domestically. Even considering the lower level of technology, the Iranian have the LCS outmatched with their surface vessels.

    For what they are, the Littoral should be a good ship. Comparing them to ships designed for other roles will lead false comparisons.
    The LCS has unacceptable performance in the littoral environment. It is outmatched by fast attack craft which are one of the primary opponents in coastal operations. It is quite fair to compare the LCS to other ship classes of similar size that operate in the coastal environment. If a alternative ship has similar displacement, range, and helicopter/asw capabilities in addition to a real armament and at a better price, I'd say we are buying the wrong vessel.
