The USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul arrived in Duluth Monday morning.

The Navy will commission the Freedom-class littoral combat ship this Saturday.

In 2019, the Navy christened and launched the ship into Wisconsin’s Menominee River.

Once commissioned, the USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul will operate mostly near shore, doing things like clearing mines or tracking down small ships or submarines.

The inside of these ships is 40% open, so they can be reconfigured in a number of ways to support a variety of missions.

This is the second ship named Minneapolis-St. Paul. The first was a Los Angeles-class attack submarine that served from 1984 to 2008.

Two other ships have been named for just Minneapolis and two for St. Paul.
