While the USS Sioux City is the 11th in the class of fast and versatile Littoral Combat Ships, it is the first time that Sioux City has been honored as a namesake city.

The USS Sioux City, was christened on January 30, 2016 by ship’s sponsor Mrs. Mary Winnefeld, wife of the former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral James “Sandy” Winnefeld.

Designed to be agile and stealthy surface combatants, Littoral Combat Ships are capable of defeating the anti-access threats of nations who challenge our freedom of navigation in contested areas like the Persian Gulf and the South China Sea. This warfighting platform incorporates innovative construction, manning, training and operational concepts geared toward ensuring a continual forward presence… Part of a maritime presence that guarantees maritime security for the United States, her allies and her friends.
