The Navy's newest warship was launched in Wisconsin Saturday morning. The future USS Wichita splashed in the water at a shipyard in Marinette.
The ship is one of the newest class of combat vessels in the Navy's arsenal. Those ships are designed to operate close to shorelines, helped by agility and speed. The Navy has already had two vessels named after the largest city in Kansas and Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell said he's happy to see a third.
