The USCG’s latest Legend class ship is the sixth NSC to come out of the company’s Ingalls shipbuilding division in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
“NSC 6 is the most complete ship at launch, and we accomplished this a week earlier than scheduled, ” Derek Murphy, Ingalls’ NSC program manager, said Monday.
“Our shipbuilders continue to improve the learning curve, and the National Security Cutter program illustrates the cost savings and first-time quality that comes from serial production.”
