Destroyer Fleet Strength by Country (2023)



NAVAL POWER | FLEET STRENGTH

Ranking total number of destroyer warships by country, from highest to lowest.



The Destroyer ship type is an advanced, multi-role surface vessel outfitted with an array of sensory equipment and weaponry to counter threats from the air, on the surface and under the surface. Destroyers are designed with speed as a key quality and can be called to operate independently of the main fleet (when hunting enemy targets) or in support of the main fleet. As such, Destroyers are given offensive and defensive systems to suit a given situation. Due to their rather expensive procurement and operating costs, only a select few navies operate destroyer-type vessels in any useful number.

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. Under-construction assets are NOT taken into account.

Note: As the United States Navy is just a handful of services operating the 'Cruiser' type warship (Ticonderoga-class), these are included in the Destroyer Fleet Strength listing. Similarly, the Russian Navy's twin battlecruisers and trio of cruisers are added to their destroyer count.

Data presented on this list is through 2023.
