FLEETS #7: Royal Netherlands Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy and Italian Navy in 2015

Written by D-Mitch

This is the first article about various countries' navies in the beginning of 2015. In this kind of articles, I briefly describe a country's navy by reporting the ships in each type/category of warships and by giving a nice image where all the types of warships are illustrated and the units are reported. I deliberately excluded many classes of auxiliary ships; those that they have "0" defence capacity.






Royal Netherlands Navy (Koninklijke Marine)

The Royal Netherlands Navy in 2015 will consist of the following warships:
  • 6 frigates (De Zeven Provinciën, Tromp, De Ruyter, Evertsen, Van Amstel, Van Speijk)
  • 4 submarines (Walrus, Zeeleeuw, Dolfijn, Bruinvis)
  • 4 offshore patrol vessels (Holland, Zeeland, Friesland, Groningen)
  • 1 joint logistic support ship (Karel Doorman)
  • 2 landing platform docks (Rotterdam, Johan De Witt)
  • 6 minehunters (Makkum, Schiedam, Urk, Zierikzee, Vlaardingen, Willemstad)
