US Navy Vessels Work Together in South China Sea

The littoral combat ship USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) partnered with the guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen (DDG 82) to complete their first combined South China Sea presence operations July 9.

During combined presence operations in the South China Sea, Fort Worth and Lassen conducted joint maneuvering exercises at sea, working together to seamlessly share information between the two platforms.

Fort Worth and Lassen also conducted joint flight operations with the ships’ embarked MH-60R Seahawk helicopters providing critical maritime domain awareness for both platforms.

Presence operations provide U.S. Navy ships the opportunity to practice the Code for Unplanned Encounters at Sea (CUES) with other nations’ ships operating in the region.
