The Swedish Royal Navy (Swedish: Svenska marinen) is the naval branch of the Swedish Armed Forces. It is composed of surface and submarine naval units – the Royal Fleet (Kungliga Flottan) – as well as marine units, the Amphibious Corps (Amfibiekåren).
In Swedish, vessels of the Swedish Navy are given the prefix «HMS,» short for Hans/Hennes majestäts skepp (His/Her Majesty's Ship). In English, this is often changed to «HSwMS» («His Swedish Majesty's Ship») to differentiate Swedish vessels from those of the British Royal Navy.
