    Dragon has already released a 1/700 scale kit of USS Independence (LCS-2), the prototypical Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). Now, Dragon is following up with an identically scaled plastic kit of USS Coronado (LCS-4). What is most remarkable about this kit is that LCS-4 is still under construction, with it not expected to enter service until May 2012. This means model-makers will get their hands on this ship long before the US Navy does! Its primary missions will include mine, anti-submarine and surface warfare depending on what mission package modules are installed on the ship.

    Based on the very popular LCS-2 kit, Item No. 7108 shares many of its extremely accurate components. However, it has been modified where appropriate to reflect any changes introduced in LCS-4. To make it even more distinctive, the ship comes with some newly tooled items such as an MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopter equipped with an MK-105 Mod 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System, more commonly known as the “sled”. This hydrofoil-type device is towed along the ocean’s surface by a Sea Dragon during minesweeping operations. As well as this, the kit also boasts an MQ-8 Fire Scout rotary-winged unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). With all these accessories, this new kit of the future USS Coronado couldn’t be any more advanced!
