Voyenno-morskoy Flot Rossiyskoy Federatsii (VMF Rossii), lit.
Military-Maritime Fleet of the Russian Federation) is the naval arm of the
Russian military. The present Russian Navy was formed in January 1992,
succeeding the Navy of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which had
itself succeeded the Soviet Navy following the dissolution of the Soviet
Union in December 1991.
The first Russian Navy was established by Peter the Great (Peter I) in
October 1696. Ascribed to Peter I is the oft quoted statement: "A ruler
that has but an army has one hand, but he who has a navy has both." The
symbols of the Russian Navy, the St. Andrew's flag and ensign (seen to the

17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest
country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's
inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation

The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the
United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the
United States. It is larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in
terms of battle fleet tonnage, according to one estimate. The U.S.
Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 10 in service, one
under construction (two planned), and two in reserve. The service has
317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It
operates 286 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.
The navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established
during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a
separate entity shortly thereafter. It played a major role in the American
Civil War by blockading the Confederacy and seizing control of its rivers.
It played the central role in the World War II defeat of Japan.
