Modern Navies - Current Warships and Submarines of the World's Sea-going Forces
One of the oldest facets of warfare is the sea component - today managed by powerful warships and attack submarines.
Naval forces serve as one component of a three-pronged approach when waging war (Land-Sea-Air). Used in conjunction with other services, naval power is critical to subduing enemy elements on the surface of the sea and under it. The major powers of the world currently hold in inventory hundreds of combat vessels of various types with the United States Navy (USN) leading the way.
