Welcome to the maritime warfare task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.

Scope[edit]

This task force covers all aspects of maritime warfare, including:

  • Naval battles or campaigns and naval raids.
  • Leaders, crewmen, staff, and strategists, as well as designers and researchers involved in the development of maritime warfare technology.
  • Naval units, naval bases, coastal forts, ship classes and individual ships.
  • Maritime combat tactics, naval warfare strategies, weaponry, terminology, and technology related to maritime warfare.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Maritime-task-force=yes to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Maritime warfare task force articles.
