List of countries with warships

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following table lists numbers of warships in service, by type and by country, in order of largest to smallest tonnage by navy.

Guide to table[edit]

  • The table only counts warships that are commissioned (or equivalent) and active (not under repair).
  • Ceremonial vessels, research vessels, supply vessels, training vessels, and unarmed icebreakers are not included.
  • Surface vessels displacing less than 250 tonnes are not included, regardless of other characteristics.
  • Armed submarines are included.
  • Patrol boats are included, even if they work for a force separate from the country's navy (for example, the Medium Endurance Cutters of the United States Coast Guard).
  • The "other landing ship" category includes all small amphibious warfare ships such as Tank Landing Ships etc.
  • The "anti-mine ship" category includes minesweepers and minehunters.
  • The "missile sub." category includes ballistic missile submarines only. Cruise missile submarines are counted as attack submarines.
  • Vessels are categorized by size and purpose in accordance with the most broadly accepted definitions. For example, some large frigates may be counted as destroyers.
  • Totals are approximate: data on some countries' brown water forces may be scarce.
  • The ranking of countries is partly arbitrary. Generally, total tonnage of ships is more important than total number of ships.
  • The vessels are grouped into five main types (indicated by colors): Red for aircraft carriers, Yellow for amphibious assault/warfare ships, Green for principal surface combatants, Peach for patrol and mine-warfare vessels and Blue for submarines.
