The Zumwalt II-class is a derivative of the Zumwalt-class stealth destroyer, which had a cripplingly expensive gun system known as the "Advanced Gun System", for which no ammunition was ever produced. The Zumwalt II-class makes use of the stealthy design of the ship's hull while abandoning the AGS in favor of a Mark 45 54-caliber artillery system, making it significantly more capable in land attack. Additional improvements from the Zumwalt include the addition of countermeasures against missiles and torpedoes, as well as an electronic warfare system.

The Nash-class destroyers or cruisers are classified differently by varying governments, as to whether they are to be considered cruisers or destroyers. The Nash-class ships are recognizable by their bow-affixed helipads, contrasting to most other ships having helipads on the stern of the ship.

The Nash-class cruisers or destroyers are the most widely-used naval vessel constructed and invented locally, as opposed to foreign-made ships, even those constructed locally under contract.

The British-designed Type 22 Frigates were the dominant frigate throughout the late 70s, early 80s, and the 90s, often providing support for the CGN-38 class nuclear-powered cruisers. With it's aging sensors and equipment being dissimilar and not shared by any other current vessel in the early 2000s, the ship was replaced by the Type 23.

The Type 12 Frigates were bought over fear of Soviet submarine attack, serving as a dedicated anti-Submarine warfare vessel. Crockerland's Type 12 ships were built by British companies in Britain using resources and funds from Crockerland, aiding the UK's economy and Crockerland's military needs.

Some historians have speculated that Crockerland's entry into the Suez War of 1956 was spurred by this partnership with Britain.
