    The USN has already divested itself out of the 76mm, as is the USCG is in the process. I believe they want to streamline the supply chain with 57mm and 5” rounds.

    So... stuck with it, then. 5" is a big too much for a frigate, I think?

    Edit: anywhere we can see the specs (size, weapons, etc) for this ship?
