Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world’s surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world’s main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.
