FLEETS #9: Royal Australian Navy, Belgian Navy and Royal Canadian Navy today

Written by D-Mitch

This is the third article about various countries' navies today. In these 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 of its class are reported. I include the vessels that will enter in service this year and I have excluded those that are about to be decommissioned. I deliberately excluded many classes of auxiliary ships; those that they have "0" defence capacity and those that have secondary roles.

  1. Hi there,
    just a minor typo in the text, the Australian landing ship dock is named "Choules" while it's the Durance class replenishment and logistic support that is named "Success".
    Cheers
