    World War 2 Warships and Submarines (1939-1945)

    Naval warfare of World War 2 marked some of the last great ocean battles in history.





    There are a total of (220) World War 2 Warships and Submarines (1939-1945) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin.


    World War 2 featured some of the last great naval battles in history and saw the aircraft carrier supplant the mighty battleship as King of the Sea. Engagements spanned from the Atlantic and Mediterranean theaters of war to the Pacific where the Allies battled the mighty naval armada of the Japanese. Within all this, coordinated strikes from aircraft became commonplace and, under the sea, the submarine lurked as the sailor's true fear.
