US Navy Awards Landing Craft Contract to Textron

Navy Times
Monday, July 09, 2012

The Navy awards a $212 million contract for Textron Inc. to design and build an amphibious landing craft called the “Ship-to-Shore Connector.”

In March 2011 a solicitation for Ship-to-Shore-Connector landing craft was issued  by the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command. The request for proposals began the process of building a replacement for the Landing Craft Air Cushion amphibious craft that first entered service in the mid-1980s.

The office of Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said the contract includes options that could make it worth as much as $570 million.

Landrieu’s office said Textron will build a boat at its Slidell facility with a 30-year service life capable of carrying a 74-ton payload and traveling at speeds of more than 35 knots.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., said the contract means “good, sustainable jobs for Louisiana.”
