From Latin armāta, the Navy is he set of naval forces of a State. The spelling rules indicate that the term must be written with TO capital letter.
The Navy is also known as Navy. It is the armed service that is responsible for the defense of a country by sea, rivers and lakes through the mobilization of frigates, corvettes, destroyers, aircraft carriers and other vessels. These forces typically include Marine infantry and naval aviation.
For instance: “The Spanish Navy completed a joint exercise with Portuguese forces aimed at training its members”, “There are those who believe that the Navy is the force that ends up resolving a war conflict”.
Specifically, we can highlight that the Spanish Navy has the privilege of being one of the oldest forces of this type that exists in the world. And it is considered that the origin of it is already in the fifteenth century, which has led to it becoming the protagonist of events of great historical relevance.
Thus, he actively participated in events such as the Discovery of America, the discovery of the trade route that could unite Asia and America or the first round the world. A trip the latter that was made by the Basque sailor Juan Sebastián Elcano, which is precisely the name of the Spanish Navy training ship.
More than 25,000 people are the ones who give shape to this aforementioned force that has several headquarters or bases throughout the geography of the country as would be the case of Rota, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or San Fernando.
It is also interesting to establish that it has different special units such as the Explosives Deactivators, the Marine Corps, the Special Operations, the Special Naval Warfare or the Combat Divers.
The navy not only requires the existence of ships, but also needs the installation of ports and workshops that allow the corresponding repairs to be carried out. This is very expensive and means that many countries do not have a Navy despite having a coastline or navigable waterways.
The general officers of the Navy are the admirals, the vice admirals and the rear admirals. Other ranks in the Navy include the cadets, the lieutenants, the captains, the lieutenants and the admirals.
Likewise, it should not be forgotten that within the field of hunting, armed is also the term used to define the entire group of hunters who, alone or with dogs, have the function of stalking cattle that have been frightened during beatings that have been made.
Armada or armado, in another sense, is an adjective that refers to the one provided with weapons, instruments or utensils: “An armed person entered the premises and threatened those present”, “Maria came to the office armed with a camera ready to take pictures of her colleagues on their last day of work”.
