USS Coronado littoral combat ship starts maintenance in Singapore

Following a four-day underway in the South China Sea, littoral combat ship USS Coronado (LCS 4) pulled into Sembawang Wharves in Singapore for a scheduled maintenance period starting Feb. 3.

That was reported by press service of United States Pacific Command (USPACOM).

At sea the crew conducted training exercises designed to maintain operational proficiency while executing emergency procedures at sea. The crew flexed the ship’s capabilities with unit-level training, casualty drills, flight operations and engineering equipment operational testing.

“It’s been an extremely productive few days at sea and the sense of enthusiasm on the deck plates was evident throughout,” said Cmdr. Scott Larson, commanding officer, USS Coronado. “The team completed essential training that will pay significant dividends during future operational tasking.”

Specific events included small boat operations, live-fire gunnery exercises, damage control drills, and over 20 combined hours of manned and unmanned flight operations.

USS Coronado (LCS-4) is an Independence-class littoral combat ship. She is the third ship of the United States Navy to be named after Coronado, California. The contract was awarded to General Dynamics-Bath Iron Works in May 2009 for the construction of LCS-4.
