Total Patrol Fleet Strength by Country


The Patrol Craft stands as a nation's last - and in some cases first - line of defense.

Patrol Boats are called upon to defend offshore waters from enemy incursion. During peacetime, this may include interception of illegal drugs while, during wartime, this would include defense of critical waterways and offshore positions that threaten shipping lanes. For the purposes of the GFP ranking, Patrol Craft include various weight classes such as coastal/deep water and missile/torpedo boats.

For the purposes of the GFP final ranking, landlocked nations are NOT penalized for the lack of a standing naval force. However, nations with a standing navy ARE penalized for lack of certain naval assets.

The data presented below is through 2017.
