What does naval tonnage mean?
Why did Napoleon never invade England?
England's Navy was too strong. Napoleon never managed to have Naval parity with the UK in terms of Naval shipping tonnage, Naval gunfire, Naval tactics or Naval leadership. An invasion fleet would have bee badly mauled on the way to the beach. It would never have been capable of putting an adequate landing party onto the shore to take the offensive and could not provide the logistical support if it did.
What were the terms of the Washington Naval Conference?
* Parity of Naval Fleets between UK and US. * Parity of Naval Fleets between France and Italy. * Japan's Fleet would be midway between the two sets. * Fuel and Boiler water would not be computed in tonnage. * No gun larger than five inch on aircraft carriers. * No gun larger than sixteen inch allowed.

What is the classification of a ship according to its size?
Under international shipping regulations for manning levels, safety rules and registration fees, the unit of measurement of a ship's size is its GROSS TONNAGE. Gross tonnage is calculated by measuring the ship's volume from keel to funnel to the outside of its hull and applying a mathematical formula. Gross tonnage is different to a ship's deadweight tonnage, displacement tonnage or net tonnage and is in effect the moulded volume of enclosed spaces on board the vessel.
What does gross tonnage on a ship mean?
Gross Tonnage (GT) refers to the volume of all ship's enclosed spaces (from keel to funnel) measured to the outside of the hull framing. Net tonnage (NT) is based on a calculation of the volume of all cargo spaces of the ship. It indicates a vessel's earning space and is a function of the moulded volume of all cargo spaces of the ship.
