Lockheed Wants to Place Aegis System on LX(R) Amphibious Ship

LPD-28, the 12th ship in the San Antonio class line, may serve as somewhat of a bridge to the upcoming class of amphibious transport docks, currently dubbed the LX(R). As part of this transitional vessel, Lockheed wants to install its vaunted Aegis Combat System aboard it, giving the ship a much higher level of defensive capabilities, independence and situational awareness.

Another step towards the San Antonio class being the basis of the US Navy's next cruiser.
