As tensions mount globally, naval budgets are growing in tandem. While the U.S. Navy and its global footprint are well recorded and widely reported, other navies from smaller countries are less known, but nonetheless important to the fabric of global security operations, particularly working in tandem with allies. Navies operate on a spectrum between deterrence and defense, to include offensive operation, support of foreign policy, and power projection to civil affair and humanitarian assistance and disaster response.  Coming in the April 2019 edition of Maritime Reporter & Engineering News is Edward Lundquist’s in-depth exploration of fleets and developments in the navies of Peru, Malaysia, Belgium, Denmark and Taiwan.
