In August 2006, the frigate HMAS Perth was officially put into service. This is the last tenth ANZAC class vessel built for the Australian and New Zealand navies. Frigates of this type are interesting for the application of the modular concept of MEKO and for their numerous continuous modernizations.
The Argentine fleet did not play a major role in the Falklands War in 1982, despite initial bold intentions. Right at the beginning of the conflict, it was planned to attack aircraft from the aircraft carrier ARA Vienticinco de Mayo on Task Force 317, which was to eliminate its British counterparts, and thus air cover. It almost came to the first battle of aircraft carriers since the end of World War II, but everything was ultimately decided by British nuclear submarines.
The backbone of the French nuclear deterrent force is currently the Le Triomphant class nuclear submarines. There are 48 M45 and M51 ballistic missiles on board, for which a total of 249 nuclear warheads are available after the reduction in weapons of mass destruction announced in 2006.
November 12, 2014 is a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the sinking of the German battleship Tirpitz .

Seawolf is the first representative of Western naval anti-aircraft systems also designed to destroy anti-ship control systems. The system has achieved considerable expansion in the Royal Navy , but despite the hopes placed in it by its manufacturer, it has not been able to make a significant impact abroad. The exemplary start of an operational career combined with a successful combat deployment in the Falkland conflict did not help.
US involvement in the tanker war - Operation Earnest Will, which was tasked with protecting Kuwaiti tanker convoys, was inherently linked to the participation of US Special Forces. These fought a covert war with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard operating in the northern regions of the Persian Gulf called "Indian country" for almost a year.
