List of equipment of the United States Navy


The Equipment of the United States Navy have been subdivided into: watercraft, aircraft, munitions, vehicles, and small arms.

USS Farragut (DDG-99), an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis combat system-equipped guided missile destroyer. The class has become the longest production run for any post-World War II U.S. Navy surface combatant, with the potential to exceed over a hundred ships.
The ubiquitous M4, a 5.56×45mm (NATO cartridge), air-cooled, direct impingement gas-operated, magazine-fed, carbine-length assault rifle, based on the M16 family of service weapons.
