Ukrainian Naval Forces (2024)


Current Active Inventory: 12 Fleet Units


Ukraine National Flag Graphic
The modern Ukrainian Navy lives and dies by its patrol force. The service lacks key solutions across multiple categories and fields mostly aging types in areas that are considered critical to naval success. Its sole frigate, Sahaydachniy, is nearing 30 years while its sole mine/countermine vessel has surpassed 35 years. Beyond a couple of landing craft (also well past their age), the service has a modest collection of OPVs of which the youngest hulls are no more than five years old and the oldest reach forty years. With Russia aggression at their doorstep and in-country, it becomes vital for the service to address key failings as pressure continues to mount.

The following represents an overview of the modern naval fighting capabilities of the Ukrainian Naval Forces (2024). The service currently counts 12 total units in its active naval inventory. This total includes frontline commissioned vessels but excludes smaller patrol vessels, auxiliary / survey ships, replenishment, and historical ceremonial types. The WDMMW review takes into account specific categories of warships covering attack, defense, and general support designs. Inventory numbers and related unit types are provided as-is and derived from publically-available information / sources. "On Order" totals found at the bottom of this article are related to any future hulls currently under procurement/construction though said hulls may not be delivered for service in the current year for various reasons.
