Austal hosted an abbreviated U.S. Navy keel-laying ceremony for its second Littoral Combat Ship, Coronado (LCS 4).

Fabrication has started on twelve of the twenty-eight modules that will make up this 416.6 ft trimaran design. Six of the twenty-eight modules are currently being outfitted with ships equipment such as gas turbines, generators, and propulsion equipment, and electrical, piping and ventilation systems. Three modules have been erected in their pre-launch position.
