    Turkey to beef up naval forces in East Mediterranean - TV

    RIA Novosti

    13:44 21/09/2011 ANKARA, September 21 (RIA Novosti) - Turkey will step up its naval presence in East Mediterranean to head off Israeli measures against aid convoys to Gaza, Turkey's NTV channel said on Wednesday.

    Warships will be tasked with patrolling regional waters and escorting Turkish boats bringing humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, raising the specter of a possible maritime confrontation with the Israeli navy.

    "Certainly, our ships will show up more frequently in these waters," he said. "Israel will not be able to move in the eastern Mediterranean as it wishes...It will see our determination in this regard."

    Erdogan also made a connection between the naval build-up and tensions over the large energy reserves under the sea in the area. Cyprus recently announced that it will begin drilling on October 1 for oil and gas off the island's southern coast, where massive gas fields were found under the seabed.

    The Turkish prime minister added that Israeli forces will be unable to stage another attack like the one that killed nine activists on a Gaza flotilla in May last year, triggering a crisis in Turkish-Israeli relations. Israel has so far refused a Turkish demand to apologize for the death of the activists.

    Turkey recently expelled Israel's ambassador and other high-level diplomats from Ankara.

    Turkey Signs $1B Deal for Landing Platform Dock

    By Burak Ege Bekdil 4:02 p.m. EDT May 10, 2015

    ANKARA, Turkey — The Turkish government announced it signed a nearly $ 1 billion deal with a local shipyard to produce the country's first Landing Platform Dock (LPD).

    Turkey's procurement agency, the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM), said SSM and Sedef, a Turkish shipyard, agreed to pen the deal after contract negotiations.  SSM announced in December 2013 that it selected Sedef for the ambitious naval program. In the LPD contract, Sedef is partnered with Spain's Navantia.

    The planned amphibious assault vessel will carry a battalion-sized unit of 1,200 troops and personnel, eight utility helicopters, three unmanned aerial vehicles and transport 150 vehicles, including battle tanks. It also will have an aircraft platform for vertical take off and landing. A ski jump at the front of the deck can be used to launch fighter aircraft.

    SSM said the 231-meter-long vessel will be completed by 2021. The LPD will deploy on the Aegean, the Black, and the Mediterranean seas, as well as on Turkish Navy's operations on the Atlantic and Indian oceans.  Turkey will be the third operator in the world of this ship type after Spain and Australia.

    Turkish Navy named first LPD Ship as TCG ANADOLU , designed by Spanish Shipyard Navantia. She will be in service in 2021.

    "The Turkish shipyard SEDEF has signed a contract with the SSM for the design and construction of one landing platform / dock (LPD) ship for the Turkish Navy.

    The agreement was made during IDEF 2015, the Defence exhibiton in Istanbul. Navantia participates in this contract as a technological partner. The firm will provide the design, transfer of technology, equipments and technical assistance to SEDEF for local construction.

    The contract means the entrance of Navantia in the Turkish market, where it opened an office in 2013. The design is based on the landing helicopter dock (LHD) 'Juan Carlos I' for the Spanish Navy. It is adapted to the Turkish Navy requirements, having the advantage of being a tested ship with excellent performance since commissioning.

    Navantia will also supply several components and systems, as the engines and the Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS). The selection of the design was announced on 27 December 2013 and the commissioning of the ship is scheduled for 2021. Navantia also has a contract for two similar ships in Australia, the 'Canberra', already commissioned, and the 'Adelaide', to be commissioned in the last quarter of 2015."

    Turkey Begins Making Its Debut Amphibious Assault Ship

    Turkey has launched the building phase of its amphibious landing platform dock (LPD) warship for the Turkish Naval Forces with a ceremony on April 30.

    Istanbul-based shipbuilder Sedef has been contracted by the Undersecretary for Defense Industries (SSM) to build the warship for the Turkish Naval Forces.

    Turkish companies, including Aselsan and Havelsan, will produce and install several parts of the ship’s components, including armaments, electronics and communications systems.

    A Spanish company, Navantia, will help in designing the ship.

    The 231-meter-long ship will be capable of carrying over 1,000 personnel and transporting helicopters, army vehicles and equipment.

    The new craft will be the biggest landing dock in the naval forces’ inventory and also have a hospital.

    The vessel will be able to be on duty at sea for 50 days without taking any logistic support and can reach a speed of 20.5 knots.

    Turkey’s defense industry needs to be 100 percent self-sufficient at a time of increased threats, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said at the opening ceremony. “Our goal is to be totally self-sufficient by 2023,” he added.

    Noting that building an amphibious assault ship was the first step on the road toward building “the world’s best aircraft carrier,” Erdoğan said Turkey’s need to have a more active presence outside its borders. “Actually, I see this as a belated step taken at a time when threats against Turkey are increasing, and also at a time when we need to be more visible in the international arena.”

    Erdoğan went on to criticize NATO countries –without giving names – for refusing to sell weapons to Turkey using the conflicts in the eastern and southeastern regions of the country “as an excuse.”

    “These are NATO allies, let me tell you. When there are ongoing threats against Turkey due to the crisis in Syria, these countries supply terrorist groups with arms, but unfortunately fail to support their friend, Turkey.

    “Then they tell me not to talk about this issue in front of the media. OK. But why are you sending those weapons to terrorist groups? Therefore, we have to be self-sufficient,” he said.

    The makers of the LPD, which was initially projected to be finalized in five years and a half, were convinced by Erdoğan to finish the project in four years.

    TURKEY LAUNCHES 4TH ADA CORVETTE AND LAYS KEEL OF FIRST I-CLASS FRIGATE

    The Tuzla Shipyard launched the fourth MILGEM Ada-class corvette (TCG Kınalıada) for the Turkish Navy on Monday, July 03.

    The TCG Kınalıada’s keel was laid down in October 2015.

    Presiding over the event, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan lauded the efforts of the Turkish naval industry for fulfilling the first major phase of the MILGEM program, i.e. the construction of four corvettes.

    According to Erdoğan, Turkish industry content now accounts for 65% of the MILGEM Ada corvette, with more than 50 Turkish entities, including companies and institutes, involved in the program.

    Named after the Istanbul Princes’ Islands, the Ada-class has a displacement of 2,400 tons at full-load and a length of 99.56 m. Intended to lead in anti-submarine warfare (ASW), the Ada-class can provide support for littoral and offshore operations, such as patrol and policing.

    The MILGEM Ada is armed with one 76 mm main gun, two triple ASW torpedo launchers, two quad-cell anti-ship missile (AShM) launchers, two 12.7 mm guns and a point-defence missile system for defensibility against nearby aerial threats.

    Currently, two MILGEM Ada-class corvettes – the TCG Heybeliada and TCG Büyükada – are serving with the Turkish Navy, with the remaining two – TCG Burgazada and now TCG Kinaliada – undergoing sea trials.

    The TCG Kinaliada launch was accompanied by the keel-laying of the TCG Istanbul, the first I-Class multi-mission frigate. This follows the TCG Istanbul’s steel-cutting ceremony in January.

    While derived from the same design as the Ada, the I-Class is 14 metres longer and has a displacement of 3,000 tons. In addition to two octuplet-cell AShM launchers (for 16 missiles), the I-Class is also equipped with a 16-cell vertical launch system (VLS) for surface-to-air missiles (SAM).

    Turkey intends to complete the TCG Istanbul by 2021. Turkey intends to produce four I-Class frigates: TCG Istanbul, TCG Izmir, TCG Izmit and TCG İçel. Long-term development plans center on the TF-2000 anti-air warfare (AAW)

    Mid-Life Modernisation For Barbaros Class Frigates

    Turkish Navy signed a contract with Aselsan-Havelsan Joint Venture for mid-life upgrade on Barbaros class frigates.

    The scope of the contract is to replace the legacy combat management system on board of the 4 MEKO 200 Track IIA/B class frigates, commissioned between 1997 and 2000 to Turkish Navy. These frigates have TACTICOS combat management system built by Dutch company Signaal. (Now Thales). The new Barbaros Combat Management System (BI-SYS), will be a derivate of the existing GENESIS CMS made locally and used on Ada (Milgem) class corvettes and Gabya (Perry) class frigates.

    The joint venture is formed between the defence electronic company Aselsan and defense software company Havelsan The Joint Venture, will carry out development of all the hardware and software needed to integrate weapons and sensors on board with the BI-SYS. This phase will be followed by land and sea test before final integration on board of the ships.

    Furthermore, a fire control system to control the Mk45 127mm gun will be manufactured with the knowledge gained from a similar FC system developed locally for the 76mm guns.

    The delivery of the first ship is planned in November 2020.

    Turkey expected to receive first locally-made aircraft carrier on 2021

    The Turkish Navy is expected to receive the first nationally built aircraft carrier, the TCG Anadolu, which can be configured as a light aircraft carrier on 2021, said ahaber.com.tr on 18 July.

    Turkish news website reported on 18 July that the TCG Anadolu multipurpose amphibious assault ship will be delivered to the Naval Forces Command in April 2021.

    With the multipurpose amphibious assault ship joining the navy, Turkey will be one of 14 countries in the world with an aircraft carrier. The TCG Anadolu, which is being produced with a local content ratio of 68 percent, will be one of the world’s most advanced aircraft carriers. The 32-meter-wide giant ship will be capable of moving 9,000 miles (14,500 kilometers) without refueling.

    The production of the highly anticipated attack ship, which consists of 114 blocks, will boost the capacity of Turkish naval forces and increase the operational capability of the Turkish Navy.

    Officials said in March approximately 90 percent of the [building] blocks were at the end of production, adding that immediately after the manufacturing phase, fittings will be carried out.

    The construction works began on 30 April 2016 at the shipyard of Sedef Shipbuilding Inc. in Istanbul, with the keel being laid 7 February 2018.

    The TCG Anadolu multipurpose amphibious assault ship is based on the Spanish LHD Juan Carlos I and Australian Canberra-class landing helicopter docks and can be configured as a light aircraft carrier.

    It will be capable of operating up to 12 F-35B STOVL stealth multirole combat aircraft and 12 helicopters in “light aircraft carrier” configuration.

    The new multipurpose amphibious assault ship has a 5,440m² flight deck and a 990m² aviation hangar which can accommodate either 12 medium-size helicopters or 8 CH-47F Chinook heavy-lift helicopters. Additionally, the ship will have a 1,880m² light cargo garage for TEU containers and 27 Amphibious Assault Vehicles (AAV); a 1,165m² dock which can host four Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM) or two Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC), or two Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel (LCVP); and a 1,410m² garage for heavy loads, which can host 29 Main Battle Tanks (MBT), The ship’s crew will consist of 261 personnel: 30 officers, 49 NCOs, 59 leading seamen and 123 ratings.

    With a displacement of 28,000 tonnes at full load and a length of 225 meters, the ship will be capable of reaching speeds of up to 21 knots.

    This should be a wake up call for Russia if its true, imagine Turkey being able to beat Russia in building ships of this tonnage, based on its specs this ship is heavier than the Lavina class which itself is still on paper Exclamation

Additionally, the ship will have a 1,880m² light cargo garage for TEU containers and 27 Amphibious Assault Vehicles (AAV); a 1,165m² dock which can host four Landing Craft Mechanized (LCM) or two Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC), or two Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel (LCVP); and a 1,410m² garage for heavy loads, which can host 29 Main Battle Tanks (MBT), The ship’s crew will consist of 261 personnel: 30 officers, 49 NCOs, 59 leading seamen and 123 ratings.

    With a displacement of 28,000 tonnes at full load and a length of 225 meters, the ship will be capable of reaching speeds of up to 21 knots.

    This should be a wake up call for Russia if its true, imagine Turkey being able to beat Russia in building ships of this tonnage, based on its specs this ship is heavier than the Lavina class which itself is still on paper Exclamation

    Its basically modified Juan Carlos class, imo quite good design for light carrier. And its far from paper it was laid down already.

    It will be interesting to see if Turkey can afford it with the collapse of their currency.

    They will surely build it, however we need to see how operations with it will go. Such ships are fairly expencive to operate as we all know. Tho i dont think Turks will allow it to become port queen.
