The country of Chile knows the importance of having a naval force, especially since they have a history of fighting for their freedom that goes back as far as the early 1800s. Luckily for them, they won the Battle of Chacabuco in 1817. The rich history of the Chilean Navy has led the nation to snatch the 35th spot on the world’s most significant naval forces.
Reports showed that the country’s Naval forces receive $5.5 billion for their defense budget. The Navy’s 69 assets are used to protect their country in all its endeavors. With four submarines, eight frigates, and 23 patrol crafts, they’re a force to be reckoned with.
