U.S. 7th Fleet

Headquarters: Yokosuka, Japan

Mission: The U.S. 7th Fleet (C7F) operates in the largest of the U.S. Navy’s numbered fleets. At any given time there are 70-80 ships and submarines, 140 aircraft and approximately 40,000 Sailors and Marines in region.

C7F has maintained a continuous forward presence in the Indo-Asia Pacific since being founded in Australia in 1943, providing security and stability to the region, upholding key alliances and building upon maritime partnerships.

C7F uses both forward-deployed ships from Japan, Singapore, Guam and other locations as well as rotationally-deployed ships from the West Coast to execute military operations across the spectrum, from major combat operations to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

C7F forces operate in the region every day of the year and work closely to build partnerships with our allies, partners and friends while allowing for rapid response to any crisis, natural or man-made.

Building partnerships and familiarity helps improve stability through cooperation, avoid misunderstandings and prevents unnecessary military escalation. C7F units typically take part in 100 bilateral & multilateral exercises and 200 port visits each year, comprising 1,800 total days of engagement every year.

AO: Covers 48 million square miles of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, from the International Date Line to the India/Pakistan border and from the Kuril Islands in the north to the Antarctic in the south. The region Includes 36 maritime countries, more than 50 percent of the world’s population, 3,000 languages and seven of the world’s 10 largest militaries. The U.S. maintains mutual defense treaties with five allies in the region to include the Philippines, Australia, the Republic of Korea, Japan and Thailand.
