I mean no disrespect but can you at least correct me?

We didn't had a serious development on domestic ship engines since Pendik-Sulzer got closed

I remember reading writing of a retired navy engineer talking about infrastructures they earned to Turkey for Turkey to repair, maintain its own navy ships locally. He said that wanted Turkey to have in house capabilities for repairing, maintaining LM2500 engines.
Pendik-Sulzer was the closest we have got in proper engine development, either say it was massacred by officials in 1999 - and later in 2000s by officials, it could have been revived in nearby future and it would provide at least the culture of engine production which would eventually lead to development of machinery for Turkish naval vessels in 2000s , and it is gone not revived.
However, as of i know both gas turbines and diesel engines, and transmissions are maintained by Turkish personnel, and as usually happens there are also foreigner technicians -especially on gas turbine- for several reasons.

From the photo angle, It seems The Tf-2000 model is purposely taken into the frame.

Improved version of Zorya UGT-25000 (DA80) Gas Turbine Engine for TF-2000 :unsure:


Good blog post on uskudar.biz about this

We need our own marine turbine but we can kick start with some off the shelf Ukrainian stuff.

Clean Up - Do they still plan on using Phanlanx CIWS
View attachment 4478
This design is being worked on since 2016 or even earlier. And those CIWS are replaced with Gökdeniz already, yet the images are not shared.
There are few images with Millennium gun as well, but probably TN doesn't like it because of its dependency on an external FCR.

Really hope this is true if not it would mean there has mean almost zero progress over the last year on the ship, which would be pretty disappointing.
He is wrong, that is I class. If i am not mistaken the shipyard spares one slipway for new construction.
In contrary, there has been advancement in building, and soon they will start to erect supperstructure. Might be lauched even before than 2021 to make space for PN Milgem.
We may soon expect to hear serial production of the remaining 3.

Turkish seaplane for aerial firefighting, search and rescue, naval operations when?

We can build seaplanes, build a fleet and lease it to the countries around us, including Greece.
