Warship Costs

0
306

               I am constantly struggling to find relevant costs of warships and auxiliaries when proposing defense alternatives for navies. Here is a Page specifically for this purpose, for my own reference, and anyone who needs it. Your help in finding relevant sources is much appreciated. Wikipedia is not a good source but it is a good starting point as they often post source links for their information, though not always.
This is an ongoing project. Prices are in US dollars.
