The United States Navy is a branch of the United States Armed Forces. It is responsible for naval units as well as transportation overseas of Air Force units and of the United States Marine Corps. They also have a special forces regiment known as the United States Navy SEALs.
Although players never have the chance to play as a member of the United States Navy (other than the SEALs and Navy Aviators), the Navy makes a few appearances.
Battlefield 1942 & Battlefield 1943Edit
Many ships of the USN appear in Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 1943 and are usable to some extent, but the player never has the chance to play as a sailor instead being a member of the United States Marine Corps.
In Battlefield Heroes "Battlefield Heroes gets Bad Company", the Philadelphia Experiment carried out on the destroyer escort USS Eldridge (DE-173) is the backstory to how George Gordon Haggard Jr. and Arkady Kirilenko ended up in the game.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, USN ships are spotted in the background of some multiplayer maps, like Valparaiso, Isla Inocentes and Laguna Presa. USN submarines on Nelson Bay are launched if the American defenders are victorious, or destroyed, along with the base, if they are defeated.
Battlefield 3EditThe United States Navy appears in Battlefield 3 and it's the first game where sailors of the navy can actually be seen by players, the player also will take the role of a navy aviator, Lt. Jennifer Hawkins in the mission Going Hunting. The F/A-18E Hornets used in Multiplayer also have Navy markings and logos on them.
Battlefield 4 Edit
The USS Valkyrie, identical to the Essex, only differing by name, is Tombstone Squad's home, and is seen in every mission except Baku. In the South China Sea, Tombstone recovers intel from the USS Titan, which had recently been assaulted and heavily damaged and boarded by the Chinese. Tombstone successfully recovers the intel and escapes from the Titan, just before the carrier completely sank.
