Building a Navy – deWulf Navy (4)

Continuing the series on Building a Navy, once the Fleet Missions have been decided, the next stage is Fleet Design. Here the actual decisions are made about what the navy will use in order to accomplish them. The Chart Defined Fleet Missions combined with the Fiscal Environment determines what the Fleet Design is. deWulf Fleet… Continue reading Building a Navy – deWulf Navy (4)
