The Naval Arms Race

In the world of Mare Bellicus, the Great Powers are vying for new colonies in the less developed parts of the world. To that end, each is constructing a navy to contend against the others, in an effort to enforce their expansion through military might.

There are six major powers and their initial fleet rosters are presented below. In the future, they will have individual pages here, to track their development.
