Behold, TN is finally reflecting some changes from the field to website. The preparations for the new era, 2 frigates and 2 FACs shifted to Training class, along with TCG Beykoz that used as a test-R&D ship before, and 2 Ay-Class submarines that one used to be a test platform for some years already.

This only indicates what is waiting for us ahead; Navy needs training platforms to catch up with the new orders. One Ay class for Test, another for Training and 2 FACs for training of new FAC personnel. TCG Beykoz for OPV training.

And now we are down to 15 frigates from last year's 16 with Istanbul's inclusion this year. Constructing next 3 I class ships back to back now make much more sense.

I demand a new TCG Yavuz asap... Hopefully one of the TF2000s are named after it.

Thats mean until 2026 we have only 15 frigates , which is low number for Turkiye .
But after 2026 our navy will be alot younger with 4 istanbul class and 4 modernised barbaros class .
Then we need 4 other Istanbul class which decision was taken to replace 4 old Gabya which dont have vls .
Thats mean by 2028 we will have :
4- barbaros
8- Istanbull
4- Gabya
(16 fringates with VLS )
-Then for blue navy and to protect our interests far away and to company our Anadoly and AC . 8-12 new Tf 2000 will be build after 2028.
Thats mean 20-24 major warships for Turkiye . This number will aslo be for submarines .

yep. Delays in army, army aviation and other aircraft are pretty much apparent in shipbuilding as well. I believe this is the lowest number of active duty major combatants we had since 70s. Hopefully rest of Istif Class won't be delayed.

well, it's an old design.

Nevertheless I think there could be something to this visit. Perhaps it's to show the usefullness of the Harriers.

It’s part of Spain’s Dedalo task group. An Albaro de Bazan class frigate from the task force is also in Izmir. Group will start in Turkey and Greece, patrol in east med, Italy, west Med and then Atlantic.

Can MKE do anything by itself? It’s not even that good at actual production of already designed stuff.

MKE WINS WARS by making ammunition in millions, while other flashy defense tech companies win twitter likes for a few prototypes that won't last more than a few days in a real peer war.

Artillery and men firing at each other is how wars are fought once TB2s, jets, tanks, missiles etc. run out. Russia was preparing the biggest stockpile of tanks and missiles on the planet since WW2. For 70 YEARS! They even used up the WW2 era tanks. Now soldiers are back in trenches shooting each other as in WW1.

MKE has improved significantly the last few years, you can't make a 180° over night especially not when the company was mismanaged the last decades.

“Today the Turkish Navy begins its largest exercise in recent years. The peculiarity of these exercises is not only the number of military personnel and equipment involved in them, but also the fact that they are carried out in the waters of all the seas washing Turkey.
The press service of the Turkish Navy reports that warships and auxiliary vessels are being deployed for maneuvers in the Black, Marmara, Aegean Seas, as well as in the eastern Mediterranean»

“In total, Turkey is using more than a hundred surface ships, 8 submarines, about 40 aircraft, 16 helicopters, 28 attack and reconnaissance UAVs in naval maneuvers. Naval drones are also expected to take part in the maneuvers. The number of Turkish military personnel participating in the exercises is also stated - 15 thousand. These are truly unprecedented numbers for Turkey in recent years.”
Russian military publications write about this»

In line with the needs of the Naval Forces Command, mass production of the AKYA Heavy Class Warfare Torpedo, developed by ROKETSAN with domestic and national resources, has started and its delivery to our submarines has begun.

The AKYA torpedo successfully demonstrated its hit and destruction ability during the war launch conducted by the TCG PREVEZE Submarine in the Eastern Mediterranean on December 27, 2023.
