FLEETS #8: Turkish Navy, Royal Danish Navy and Hellenic Navy in 2015

Written by D-Mitch

This is the third article about various countries' navies in the beginning of 2015. In this kind of articles, I briefly describe a country's navy by reporting the ships in each type/category of warships and by giving a nice image where all the types of warships are illustrated and the units of its class are reported. I deliberately excluded many classes of auxiliary ships; those that they have "0" defence capacity and those that have secondary roles. I have included again Hellenic Navy (see here) because I have included the designation names of the submarines and also I have added one more Type 214 submarine (HS Matrozos) that will begin trials the coming months.

  1. Overall a really nice overview of the Danish navy....a minor correction though....its not called Sjøforsvaret (thats the Norwegian Navy's name)...but "Søværnet".
    Its also worth mentioning that the ageing arctic cutter Tulugaq will be replaced by an additional (improved) Knud Rasmussen class from 2016/17.

  3. Hello D-Mitch, great work! Just a small typo "10 submarines (Papanikolis, Pipinos, Matrozos, Okeanos, Poseidon, Amfitriti, Pontos, Nireus, Triton, Pontos)" while the last "Pontos" should be "Proteus".
    KUTGJ!
