Navy Ships Asia

Here is an overview of my spotted naval vessels from Asia (which are not NATO member states)

include the original name of their navy branch an naval flag, but without a fleet list.

These ships often visit major maritime events and travel around the world with new cadets/midshipmen as the ambassadors for their country.
