Welcome to Warships!

  The fate of land has been long decided at sea.  There will always be a romance for the sea and the sleek warships that have sailed upon it, from the wooden-hulled ships of the line to the steel hulled battleships.  Warships is a glimpse of some of those men-o-war, particularly those operating in the Indian Ocean.

Sea warfare is the most complex of all forms of warfare.  The ships, their armament, radar, counter-measures and anti-submarine warfare capability are all integrated into one unit.  Ships of today will eventually be retired from service, yet some of their names will carry on in newer ships.  The result is an engineering feat worth photographing for posterity.

Ships have been classified according to their role, armament and size.  Most of the ships photographed are operational, with two ships being floating museums. 

Enjoy the pictures!
