OVERVIEW



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.

NOTE: Naval services are listed by their proper, long form names so the 'North Korean Navy' is found under the name of 'Korean People's Naval Force'. Similarly the 'Chinese Navy' is listed as the 'People's Liberation Army Navy'. Nations are presented below in alphabetical order (A-Z).
