The 4th Naval Warfare Flotilla is a unit whose task is to train vessel crews, staff personnel and operators of repair and command vessels, corvettes, minesweepers and EOD groups.
Operations are designed to ensure the capability to engage in armed combat at sea is maintained and further developed through training and exercising career officers and national service personnel. This is done via both national and international naval exercises including within the parameters of Partnership for Peace (PFF).
Minesweepers and ordnance clearing divers offer a capability that is in short supply at national and international level. This is the capability to search, trace, pinpoint, identify, disarm and salvage ordnance under water. EOD diver groups also have the capability to further enhance these capabilities and operate on both land and sea, in the latter case both on the surface and in the water.
The corvettes have excellent armed combat capabilities at sea, above and below the surface. Their excellent capability to operate close to shore and in archipelagos is becoming increasingly in demand internationally. Corvettes can patrol large sea areas and monitor air space and have tremendous strike power where necessary.
Fleet and command vessels have the capability to support flotilla vessels and provide the platform for unit commanders heading unit operations at sea.
