Jordanian Navy

The Royal Jordanian Navy is an oddity since the country is landlocked except for its southern extremity, presenting a coast just 26 kilometres (16 mi) wide along the Gulf of Aqaba allowing at least a vital trade access to the Red Sea. There she had 27 patrol boats and 700 personnel, with the 77th Marines Reconnaissance Battalion and the small green water naval force is under command of the army.

This small fleet today is part of maritime Combined Task Force 152 securiig the Persian Gulf.
