Thaon di Revel-Class vibes, in a smaller scale.

We are literally getting 10 Light Frigates for cheap who in case of a conflict can be armed to the teeth and protect our assets in the Aegean Sea and Mediterreanen with ease. 10. Tell me who has 10 ships in the area of the same caliber of armaments.

Adding to it 4 I-Class, 4 MLU Barbaros, 4 Ada-Class and hopefully 7 TF-2000 Destroyers.

Turkey will rule the seas. There is no one who can oppose us with that inventory, in our vicinity.

I have counted:
1 x 76mm gun
2 x Stamp
1 x Gokdeniz
1 x quad Umtas
2 x Quad-packed VLS
8 x AShM

Feel free to add.
This is better equipped than Ada Class corvettes.

What radar do you see? No point being armed to the teeth if you can't see two feet in front of you...

Well spotted! After I wrote this list. I went back to the video and thought it looked a bit bare on the mast!
Unless they are going to add an Aesa based radar or use a separate radar carrier, these weapons really won’t mean much.

edit:
Aesa radar is one of the costliest equipments on a any ship. Almost all the weapons we have spotted can be introduced at a later stagel apart from ones like main gun. So if you want to produce economical platforms that can be converted quickly to weaponised ships, this design seem to lend itself well to that effect.

Those ships won't be sailing around on their own. They will be connected to other systems (such as drones and AWACS on the skies, USV's on the seas and many others) and get information with their data link capabilities and other combat management systems developed by ASELSAN, Meteksan, HAVELSAN etc. Excuse me for not recalling their names.
