The rest of the World! This page groups together current and retired ships, from a variety of the World’s smaller naval forces. Generally we define these as navies possessing less than 3 frigates or larger surface combatants.* 98 ship classes documented with 148 captures.
See lower pages for ship views and photo credits:
*this definition was loosely applied. Please also see the associated list of other navy pages (in menu tabs under “Shipsearcher Intro”) or the release history page for the many navies documented on other pages.
** The Isreali Navy would be part of this project, but there has not been satellite imagery loaded on Google Earth of sufficient quality for the principal naval facilities of Haifa, Ashdod, or Eilat, to justify creating pages. Once new imagery is added that has sufficient resolution to show major warships, a page should be created.
