America's Navy may be the most powerful and sophisticated the world has ever known. It starts with our aircraft carriers and submarines – iconic vessels with proud histories of service and success. But it also includes multi-mission ships such as cruisers, destroyers and frigates. To get from the ocean to the shore, the Navy uses amphibious craft that can put troops and equipment almost anywhere. From humanitarian missions to combat operations, Navy ships are ready wherever and whenever they are called upon.
