The Finnish Navy (Finnish: Merivoimat, Swedish: Marinen) is one of the branches of the Finnish Defence Forces. The Navy employs 2,300 people and about 4,300 conscripts are trained each year. Finnish Navy vessels are given the ship prefix "SLA," simply short for "Suomen merivoimissa" (Finnish Navy Ship), and it is not used in Finnish language contexts. The Finnish Navy also includes coastal forces and coastal artillery.
