Fleet Commander

The Fleet Commander is a senior Royal Navy post, responsible for the operation, resourcing and training of the ships, submarines and aircraft, and personnel, of the Naval Service. He provides ships, submarines and aircraft ready for operations and is based at Navy Command Headquarters. The British Army equivalent is Commander Land Forces. The RAF's Deputy Commander (Operations) is the close equivalent of the two positions. [1]


The post was created in April 2012 following a reorganisation of the Royal Navy and a re-designation of the former role of Commander-in-Chief Fleet.[2]


The Fleet Commander's purpose is to provide ships, submarines and aircraft ready for any operations that the Government requires.[2]
