Naval base

The French Navy has a flotilla based in Réunion, comprising (from left to right on the photo): the Southern patrol ship Albatros, the frigate Floréal, the P400 class patrol vessels La Rieuse and La Boudeuse and the patrol boat of the Gendarmerie Navale Jonquille, the BATRAL La Grandière and the Garonne, behind the CIGH22 tank, and the swift boat Vétiver (outside the water).

A naval base (military port) is a military base, where warships and naval ships are deployed when they have no mission at sea or want to restock. Usually ships may also perform some minor repairs. Some naval bases are temporary homes to aircraft that usually stay on the ships but are undergoing maintenance while the ship is in port.

Often the station is merely a grouping of ships whose missions were coordinated by the senior ship[1]
