Welcome to the maritime warfare task force. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.



This task force covers all aspects of maritime warfare, including:

  • Naval battles or campaigns and naval raids.
  • Leaders, crewmen, staff, and strategists, as well as designers and researchers involved in the development of maritime warfare technology.
  • Naval units, naval bases, coastal forts, ship classes and individual ships.
  • Maritime combat tactics, naval warfare strategies, weaponry, terminology, and technology related to maritime warfare.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Maritime-task-force=yes or Maritime=y to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Maritime warfare task force articles.

Article statistics

The table to the right shows the current article assessment statistics for this task force.

A list of the top 500 most popular articles within our scope, as well as the number of page views each article received over the past month, can be found here.

With most of our articles assessed as Stub- or Start-Class, there's a lot of work to be done. However, we also have a significant number of good, A-Class, and featured articles, which have been assessed as amongst the best Wikipedia has to offer. These article serve as a yardstick for what can be achieved and should be aimed for, and can provide ideas about how to write an article and what sources to consult; they are listed below:
