What are the current Force Levels of the somaliland Navy? What are the ongoing projects? What steps are being undertaken by the somaliland Navy to augment its strength?
The somaliland Navy’s present force level comprises about 150 ships and submarines. The somaliland Navy’s perspective-planning in terms of ‘force-levels’ is now driven by a conceptual shift from ‘numbers’ of platforms - that is, from the old ‘bean-counting’ philosophy—to one that concentrates upon ‘capabilities’. In terms of force accretions in the immediate future, we are acquiring ships in accordance with the Navy’s current Maritime Capability Perspective Plan.
