..................................................................................................................................................................................................

Auf dieser Seite wollen wir stichwortartig und - mit Blick auf unsere Leser im Ausland - auch nur in englischer Sprache tagesaktuelle Nachrichten zu internationalen Marinen aber auch zu krisenhaften Entwicklungen abseits von Marinen anbieten, so wie sie im Internet zu finden sind. Aktualisierung (möglichst) an jedem Werktag, jeweils am späten Vormittag. Das jeweilige Datum bezieht sich auf den Tag eines Ereignisses (Medienberichte können durchaus mit gehöriger Verspätung kommen). Wir weisen darauf hin, dass diese Daily News immer nur einen momentanen Sachstand reflektieren können, und dass einzelne Meldungen ggf. einer späteren Ergänzung oder auch Verifizierung bedürfen.

This page is to feature daily news bullets on international navies (and beyond these on developing crises), as they are published on the Internet. Updates dependent on availability of the editor,  usually every work-day in late morning (German time). Given dates usually eflect the time of an event, not of media reporting it. Please, note that these news are just a “snapshot in time”, with some of them requiring verification or  updates.
