It hasn’t been discussed at all before now, but the littoral combat ship Independence has a mission module completely devoted to digital animation. It’s very high tech and very, very secret.
Or something like that.
The ship apparently makes a cameo appearance in “Cars 2,” as seen in the below trailer, venturing to an archipelago of oil rigs more dangerous than the Bermuda triangle for a rendezvous with a British spy. Exactly what role the LCS plays is unclear, but it may be some sort of transport ship, judging by the clips available.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGHwlExcaqU[/youtube]
