Preserving the Navy劌製 Forward Presence with a Smaller Fleet
Eric Labs (au)
The Navy considers it a core responsibility to maintain a forward presence -- to keep some of its fleet far from U.S. shores in areas important to national interests. About one-third of the fleet is deployed overseas. The rest of the ships are in or near their home ports in the U.S. for maintenance, training, or sustainment. Most of the Navy劌製 current forward presence of about 100 ships sail from ports in the US.; 31 others are stationed in foreign countries or at overseas U.S. military bases. The Navy expects to boost the proportion of ships that it bases abroad. This report estimates that, for the next 30 years, the Navy劌製 2015 shipbuilding plan (which aims to increase the fleet to 306 ships by 2022) would cost about $21 billion annually. The Navy劌製 estimates set the figure at about $19 billion per year. This report assessed the effects of three smaller annual shipbuilding budgets -- $16 billion, $14 billion, and $12 billion -- for the next 30 years. In all three cases, by 2044, the fleet would be smaller than under the Navy劌製 current plan. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
