Summary/Abstract: Within only two decades (1920-1940), the navy of Greater Romania underwent a spectacular growth, becoming a complex, well-balanced and homogenous force. As a result of the provisions of six consecutive programs, the Romanian navy was equipped with six gunboats, four destroyers, three submarines, one mine planter, one submarine tender, four M.A.S. type anti-submarine patrol boats, three torpedo boat destroyers, one training ship and others. Also, significant progress has been made in the field of naval communications, fortifications and fixed defences of the coastline, naval engineering and infantry, naval aviation, arsenal and naval bases. During the same period, the foundations were laid for a modern naval education, capable to cover the needs of both civilian and military navy.
