Warship Anatomy

Naval Warfare | Information


The modern day surface fleet warship is a collection of parts and weapons, capable of undertaking a variety of roles.

Above is a depiction of the anatomy of the standard guided-missile cruiser / frigate / destroyer in service with many navies today. Naval warships utilize similar names for various sections and components despite their different battlefield roles. Most feature missile- and projectile-based armament to counter just about any threat to them or the fleet itself. The warship in question in the image above is the Chinese Navy's Type 052C 'Lanzou' guided-missile destroyer.
