An employee welds a component of a littoral combat ship during production at Marinette Marine Corp., a subsidiary of Fincantieri SpA, based in Trieste, Italy. Fifty-six percent of the work on the new order will be performed in Marinette, the Pentagon said. The ship is designed to operate in littoral waters -- those close to shore -- for missions that range from clearing mines to delivering humanitarian aid.
