From the Annals of the Ships of the Line – In 2010, the USS Fort Worth was launched. The FW is a Freedom-class littoral combat ship. She is the first ship to be named after Fort Worth, the 16th-largest city in the United States. The FW is currently on a 16-month rotational deployment to Singapore in support of the U.S. Navy’s “strategic rebalance” to the Pacific. She is first LCS to use the “3-2-1” manning concept, swapping fully trained crews roughly every four months. FW also deploys with an aviation detachment from Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 35 (HSM-35) “Magicians”, the U.S. Navy’s first composite expeditionary helicopter squadron.
