USS Cincinnati vists Costa Rica

November 8, 2019

The USS Cincinnati, a United States Navy ship, arrived at the port town of Golfito on Thursday, according to a press release from the U.S. Embassy.

The ship docked in Costa Rica as a logistical stop during its repositioning trip from Alabama to its new base port in San Diego, California. It will remain in Costa Rican waters until Sunday, Nov. 10.

Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly approved the operation, the U.S. Embassy said.

USS Cincinnati is among the newer ships in the U.S. Navy’s fleet. It was christened in May 2018 and commissioned last month.

USS Cincinnati is an Independence-class littoral combat ship (LCS), with the following characteristics, according to the U.S. Navy:

The littoral combat ship is a fast, agile and networked surface combatant, and the primary mission for the LCS includes countering diesel submarine threats, littoral mine threats and surface threats to assure maritime access for joint forces. The underlying strength of the LCS lies in its innovative design approach, applying modularity for operational flexibility. Fundamental to this approach is the capability to rapidly install interchangeable mission packages onto the seaframe to fulfill a specific mission and then be uninstalled, maintained and upgraded at the Mission Package Support Facility (MPSF) for future use aboard any LCS seaframe.

It arrived in Costa Rica with a crew of approximately 80.
