Lockheed-led team launches another littoral combat ship, sideways. Here's the video.

A team led by Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) has launched its latest littoral combat ship, the future USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul, into Wisconsin's Menominee River. This is the eighth LCS delivered to the Navy, and eight more are in various stages of production and test. Lockheed and Fincantieri Marinette Marine will deliver two ships, complete sea trials for two more, commission three more and start construction on two this year alone.
