ABSTRACT
The article provides information on different combat fleets from different countries around the world. The fleets from Emden, Germany include Erfurt, Magdeburg, and Oldenburg. Meanwhile, two Royal Navy mariners were killed when a self-contained oxygen generation candle exploded on board on their submarine Hartlepool Marine Supplies Tireless. Lastly, the ships Van Speijk and Van Amstel were the only two remaining Dutch ships, out of the eight Karel Doorman class frigates built in 1995.
