USS Little Rock (LCS-9) Ship Side Launch at Marinette Marine Corporation

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

Sideways ship launches always seem to be the sketchiest. For some reason, it always feels like something is about to go wrong when the ship is dropped, all at once, into the water.

While sometimes, a hairy situation will find its way to the top, here and there, most of the time, it’s smooth sailing when the boat is dropped in.

This time, we check out the scene as the USS Little Rock is launched sideways and this monster hits the water hard and with a gigantic splash!

Check out the video below that shows off what happens with such an epic launch. It’s really neat to see how the ship balances itself out!
