Ready To Fight
The world has entered an era characterised by globalisation, greater connectivity of people and interests, and immediate access to information. Current trends suggest that terrorism, climate change, shifts in population, religious tensions and increased competition for natural resources all have the potential to lead to crisis, confrontation and conflict.
The Naval Service operates on land, in the air and at sea, enabling and supporting operations together with the Army and the Royal Air Force. The Royal Navy’s ability to conduct expeditionary operations enables the UK to combat security threats at range. Maritime forces operating in international waters make it possible for the UK Government to employ military force at a time and place of its choosing.
Recent and current operations include:
• Supporting the UN resolution in Libya (2011)
• Fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan through frequent deployments of RN and RM personnel
• UK amphibious landings on the Al Faw peninsular. OP Telic (2003)
• The mass evacuation by sea of UK nationals from the Lebanon during the Israeli-Hiz’bollah conflict 2006
• Supporting the government of Sierra Leone to prevent the outbreak of civil war (2000)
