MOBILE, Alabama – Austal USA launched the future USS Manchester – an advanced, high-speed aluminum warship – at its Alabama shipyard today, documenting the milestone with a series of images on social media.

The tri-hull Manchester (LCS 14) is the fifth littoral combat ship produced by Austal’s Mobile shipyard in an 11-ship contract, which worth more than $3.5 billion.

This morning, the warship rolled out of Austal’s assembly bay in Mobile and on to a launch barge. Tugs took the Manchester on the barge down the Mobile River to BAE’s dry dock. On Friday, the drydock will be flooded so the hull’s integrity can be checked. Afterwards, the tugs will return the ship to Austal.
