Maritime power is a key part of the United Kingdom's response to the varied threats and challenges of today's ever-changing political climate. Maritime forces can operate at short notice, without host nation support, all over the world and can therefore react quickly in areas of concern to the United Kingdom. Maritime power offers the benefits of:
  • Mobility
  • Flexibility
  • Versatility
  • Large lift capacity

All of which make it a powerful political tool for any government. However, success in modern warfare depends on teamwork and to be truly effective the Royal Navy must integrate with land and air forces. The Royal Navy is involved in operations and exercises throughout the world. These may vary from single ships or submarines to an entire task group and often take place away from the media spotlight. Nonetheless the Royal Navy is constantly at work defending the United Kingdom's Interests worldwide.
