The Navy’s new shipbuilding plan steps back somewhat from the force’s 355-ship fleet strategy. The new plan calls for anywhere from 320 to about 370 manned ships.

  • Bryan Clark, former special assistant to the chief of naval operations, former director of the CNO’s Commander’s Action Group and now senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said the reduction in numbers suggests a strategy shift towards creating uncertainty and impacting Chinese decision making.
  • Clark said the plan focuses on carriers and submarines with surface combatants as support.
  • He said the strategy prioritizes undersea elements with a steady increase in submarines over the next few decades.
