    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.
