Abstract:

This report describes the force structures and dispositions of major navies since World War II. Included are computer-generated 40-year order-of- battle tables for NATO and ANZUS countries, Japan, and the Soviet Union. Geographic charts are also provided that show fleet dispositions in five-year snapshots and during specified crises. Line graphs illustrate trends in both force structures and dispositions over time. These products draw on a 700,000- entry database created by a joint Naval Intelligence-CNA research effort. The database will be dated as of July 1 of every year with current information and whenever pertinent crises warrant inclusion. Keywords Deployment Fleets ships Great Britain NATO Naval vessels combatants Naval vessels support, Navy Order of battle Ships USSR.
