Balanced’ navies, those with broad capabilities in peace and war, are often assumed to be more effective navies. Balanced forces are generally believed to provide states with more flexible, agile and adaptable maritime forces than role specialisation. Using this criterion to examine maritime power in the Black Sea runs into a few problems however. With the exception of the Turkish and Russian navies the other littoral states operate either small navies or in Georgia’s case a coast guard. Amongst the majority of the Black Sea littoral states there is little appetite for balanced naval forces.

Inherent in the functional analysis is the idea of comparing naval power using geographical reach. 43 For Booth, a navy’s power, its ability to carry out military, diplomatic and constabulary functions, will decline as its geographical reach is extended.
