Template talk:Naval units
I'm in doubt regarding the hierarchy of naval units.
In the German Navy a Flotille is divided into Geschwadern (squadrons).
In the Italian Regia Marina squadra → divisione → squadriglia/flottiglia.
- According to Encyclopædia Britannica/military unit/naval:
Administratively, several ships of the same type (e.g., destroyers) are organized into a squadron. Several squadrons in turn form a flotilla, several of which in turn form a fleet. For operations, however, many navies organize their vessels into task units (3–5 ships), task or battle groups (4–10 ships), task forces (2–5 task groups), and fleets (several task forces).
- Fleet → task force → flotilla → squadron seems fine here. --Regards, Necessary Evil (talk) 15:56, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
