For more than half a millennium the Royal Navy has safeguarded the shores of our nation, smiting foes and keeping open the sea lanes – the lifeblood of our island.
Although ships and technology have changed dramatically through the centuries, the mission of the Royal Navy remains the same: to protect our nation’s interests and guarantee its prosperity and security.
We do so with a Fleet of more than 75 cutting-edge warships from nuclear submarines and helicopter carriers to small high-technology minehunters and patrol vessels, the helicopters of the Fleet Air Arm, and more than 30,000 highly-trained and motivated sailors and elite Royal Marines Commandos.
