Naval warfare

Traditional naval warfare; fleet versus fleet

Naval warfare is combat in and on the seas, oceans, or any other major bodies of water. It is usually a part of a nation's overall war effort. Men have fought battles on the sea for over 3,000 years. Traditionally naval warfare has been fleet against another fleet.[1] Modern naval warfare has changed to include Amphibious landings, transportation of men and equipment over water and naval support of land operations.[1] Submarines, aircraft carriers, and specialized warfare have all changed naval warfare.
