Mine Warfare Fleet Strength by Country (2023)



NAVAL POWER | FLEET STRENGTH

Ranking total number of mine / countermine warfare ships by country, from highest to lowest.



Mines remain one of the greatest threats to warships and shipping vessels alike. To counter the threat, navies of the world are forced to field an effective mine warfare force for neutralizing mines/minefields. Conversely, a mine warfare force can be called upon to lay down minefields in strategic waters.

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. Listing includes mine-layers and mine countermeasures vessels.

Data presented on this list is through 2023.
