FLEETS #8: Turkish Navy, Royal Danish Navy and Hellenic Navy today

Written by D-Mitch

This is the third article about various countries' navies today. 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 include the vessels that will enter in service this year and I have excluded those that are about to be decommissioned. I deliberately excluded many classes of auxiliary ships; those that they have "0" defence capacity and those that have secondary roles.

  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!

  4. Hello, perfect work for Turkish Navy. May be some minor points can be corrected. Turkish navy has 9 AB-212 ASW and also has 2 AB-212 transferred from Turkish Land Forces for transport and utility operations. Also first 2 ATR-72-600 transferred to the Turkish Navy has no MPA mission equipments and only for transport and utility aircrafts. Other 6 ATR-72-600 aircrafts will have Thales AMASCOS MP mission systems (First order was include 10 ATR-72-500 MPA, But contract revised to 2 Utility ATR-72-600 and 6 ATR-72-600 MPA aircrafts). Also, may be u can add to the list and schema A-1600 TCG iskenderun transport ship an old Ro-ro. it's oeprational and used for many evacuation operations for turkish citizens from crises areas. Thank u again for your work.

    1. Excellent comment, thank you! About the helicopters, I avoid to include helos in general that are not ASW/ASuw. So anything else is excluded. About the ATR-72s, I just "predict" that Turkey will have two ASW aircraft operational before the end of the year. I am thinking seriously to create a new graph that will include also A1600 which i missed it.
