Acerca de


Combat Fleets is internationally acknowledged as a comprehensive, authoritative, and affordable one-volume reference on the world's naval and paranaval forces. Updated biennially, it includes accurate and timely data about the composition of the afloat, coastal defense, and aviation arms of more than one hundred eighty countries and territories, including coast guards and other armed maritime government services. Whether major fleets like those of the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, and Italy, or small maritime forces like those in Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands, all are given equally thorough treatment.

Detailed and current information is provided on the characteristics and capabilities of ships and craft ranging from giant aircraft carriers and ballistic missile submarines to the smallest of tugboats and launches--literally thousands of vessels not found in similar publications. To keep the reader totally up to date, special attention is given to documenting the retirement or transfer abroad of older warships. Full descriptions of principal naval aircraft, weapons systems, and sensors are provided along with useful data on organization, personnel strengths, and bases. Thoroughly indexed, this new volume has been compiled from information contributed by more than a hundred correspondents around the world and illustrated with thousands of photographs and drawings--ninety percent of which are new to this edition.

Researchers can access all this information quickly, thanks to a thorough indexing of the material and a logical ship-typing system that not only makes the book easy to use but also makes comparisons between fleets easier. Because ship classes within each type are arranged from new to old, the latest developments are easily noted.

For this Naval Institute guide that presents the state of the world's fleets at the beginning of the millennium, A. D. Baker once again raises the standard for breadth of coverage, volume of detail, and ease of use. The fact that Combat Fleets also remains the least expensive single-volume reference available makes the work unbeatable.

CD-Rom Version(ISBN: 1557501912)

Redesigned to operate in a Windows Help format, the CD-ROM version of Combat Fleets 2000-2001 allows rapid access to specific information and even faster navigation between countries, ship types, and classes. Information can be retrieved through three easy navigational tools. First, the Table of Contents lists information in a format much like Windows Explorer, with all the subjects in files under each folder (country). With the second navigational tool, data is located through an Index function that contains key words for ships, aircraft, and systems listed alphabetically. The final tool is a Search function that allows the user to enter a key word. It's that simple. Once a topic is selected it appears in a display window on the right of the screen so that the user can see the requested information while having access to other topics.

Like previous editions, this new version includes copy-and-paste features for text and more than 4,000 photographs and 175 line drawings. These nearly all-new illustrations can be retrieved through a click-to-view command or by going to the image file via the Table of Contents. The CD-ROM continues to provide a conversion calculator for converting numeric values.


"...this well-researched, well-edited work of reference is a real bargain...essential reading." -- Marine News--Journal of the World Ship Society, May 2001
