POLL DESCRIPTION
Since the end of WWII, naval mines have sunk or damaged more U.S. ships than any other form of armament.

With the Avenger-class mine-countermeasures ships retiring in 2024, the official plan is to replace them with the littoral combat ship (LCS) with a mission-specific module.

Should the U.S. continue with this plan, or should it design a new, dedicated mine-warfare vessel?
