Total Corvette Warship Strength by Country

Naval Corvettes are the dimensionally smallest categorized group of recognized ocean-going surface warship available to world powers today.

OVERVIEW



The Corvette vessel type was born during the 'Age of Sail'. Modern Corvettes are typically dimensionally smaller than Frigates and larger than Coastal Patrol Craft though the differences between Frigates and Corvettes begins to lessen when some navies consider certain vessels Corvettes when they could technically be described as Frigates. Corvettes supply a balanced mix of firepower, ocean-going capabilities and rotary-wing support while presenting reasonable economic benefits. Not every major naval power emphasizes the Corvette as part of its surface fleet - though they are consistently found in numerically smaller navies of the world.

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.
