Forces: U.S. Navy Warships

Archives

October 19, 2007:   The chart below shows the current (as of Summer, 2007) warships serving in the U.S. Navy. CGs are Cruisers (the "G" stands for guided missiles, which all major warships use these days.) CVs are aircraft carriers (an "N" means nuclear powered.) DDGs are destroyers. FFG are frigates. LHA, LHD, and LPD are large amphibious ships that usually carry a battalion of marines, plus helicopters and landing craft. LSDs are smaller amphibs, and carry only about half a battalion. MCM and MHC are mine clearing ships. PC are coastal patrol boats. SSBN are ballistic missile submarines, SSN are attack subs. LCS are Littoral Combat Ships and AKE are combat transports. The American fleet is the largest in the world, and one of the most effective, on a ship-for-ship basis. That combination gives the U.S. Navy an unprecedented portion (about half) of world naval combat power.

Help Keep Us Soaring

We need your help! Our subscription base has slowly been dwindling. We need your help in reversing that trend. We would like to add 20 new subscribers this month.

Each month we count on your subscriptions or contributions. You can support us in the following ways:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..
