STM will conduct the Mid-Life Modernisation of the Gür-Class Submarines (Type-209/1400) in the inventory of the Turkish Naval Forces.
With a press release today, STM announced that critical navigation, mechanical and communication systems on board the Gür-Class Submarines will be modernised with modern national capabilities, thus extending their service life.

Under the leadership of the Defence Industry Agency (SSB), STM Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret A.Ş. continues to take critical tasks in the modernisation of the Navy’s submarines – as one of the vital strike power of the Turkish Armed Forces.

As the backbone of the Submarine Command, an important milestone has been reached in the Preveze and Gür-Class submarine (Type 209/1400) programmes. A Contract Amendment adding operations related to the Gür-Class Submarine Mid-Life Modernisation Program to the content of the Preveze-Class Submarine Mid-Life Modernisation Program was signed between the STM-ASELSAN-ASFAT-HAVELSAN Joint Venture (JV) and the SSB on 17 January 2024.

Anscheinend plant man den Bau eines Flugzeugträgers (also keines Drohnenträgers wie die Anadolu). Im Gespräch ist wohl ein Schiff von 285 m Länge und rund 60.000 ts, also etwa im Bereich der Queen-Elizabeth-Klasse...
Zitat:Design of the Turkish Aircraft Carrier Unveiled

The future ship, as expected, is significantly larger than TCG ANADOLU LHD at 285 m length and 60000 tonnes displacement. The officials have stated that the new ship will be larger to accommodate more aircraft.

What aircraft type will be used hasn't been disclosed, but a few KAAN fighter jets can be observed on the deck. [...] It is stated that the operation type of aircraft will be Short Takeoff But Arrested Landing (STOBAR), used on Russian, Indian and early Chinese aircraft carriers. Instead of the catapult-assisted takeoff, this method is simpler and cheaper as a partially up-curved runway is used instead of a catapult. [...] A Combined Gas Turbine and Gas Turbine (COGAG) propulsion system will be used to provide a speed of 25 knots. Another case of Turkiye's use of COGAG propulsion on a large-sized warship is the DİMDEG logistic support ships. The design goal can explain why all-turbine propulsion must have the large-sized ships keep up with their escorts.

Ich frage mich nur, was die Theorie dahinter ist? Alleine für das östliche Mittelmeer oder das Schwarze Meer wäre das völlig überzeichnet und rausgeworfenes Geld, ein "weißer Elefant" von eingeschränktem Nutzen. Also wäre die Frage, welche Aufgabenfelder das Schiff wo übernehmen soll?

Das Ego von Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spazieren zufahren, da ist die Größe gerade ausreichend.

Turkish Navy’s submarines are getting stronger with national systems
Gür-class submarines will be equipped with national and modern systems.

STM, Türkiye’s naval engineering power, has assumed the responsibility for system procurement and platform integration in the Half-Life Modernization activities of the Gür Class Submarines in the inventory of the Turkish Naval Forces. The critical navigation, machinery and communication systems of the Gür Class Submarines will be modernized with national and modern capabilities to extend the life of the submarines.

Under the leadership of the Presidency of the Republic of Türkey Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB), STM Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret A.Ş., which plays an important role in Türkiye’s defence industry and national technology move, continues to play critical roles in the modernization activities of submarines, one of the most important striking elements of the Turkish Armed Forces.


Es gibt neues zum TF-2000 Projekt, im Gegensatz zu einem früheren Entwurf, soll die Tonnage von 8500 auf 8300 Tonnen Sinken. Die Länge sinkt auch von 166 m auf 149 m. Die Anzahl der VLS Zellen soll mehr als 64 betragen, der Experte geht von bis 96 Zellen aus.

AKHİSAR OPV’s drydocking process has been completed
The drydocking process of the AKHİSAR ship, built within the scope of the Offshore Patrol Vessel project, has been completed.

At the Weekly Press Information Meeting of the Ministry of National Defense, Press and Public Relations Advisor Rear Admiral Zeki Aktürk announced important developments regarding the AKHİSAR Offshore Patrol Ship. Aktürk stated that the drydocking process, which is a critical stage after the launch of AKHİSAR, the first ship built within the scope of the Offshore Patrol Vessels Project carried out under the main contractor of ASFAT within the Ministry, was successfully completed on February 23, 2024.


In order to more effectively protect and defend Türkiye’s rights, interests and interests in the seas, the construction activities of the Hisar Class Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV), the construction of which has started in order to respond to the need for Offshore Patrol Vessels in the shortest time and in the most cost-effective manner, is carried out by Istanbul Shipyard Command under the main contractorship of ASFAT. While it was aimed to produce 10 ships within the scope of the project, the first two ships of the series, AKHİSAR and KOÇHİSAR, were launched on September 23, 2023, only 17 months after the first sheet metal cutting, both ships were equipped to an advanced level and started port acceptance tests as soon as possible.

KANGAL-D C-UAS Jammer Integrated on Naval Platforms
ASELSAN has announced that the naval version of the KANGAL jammer, KANGAL-D, has been integrated into naval platforms for the first time. The integration can be taken as an implementation of ASELSAN’s C-UAS jammer product, which has been in service for nearly four years on naval platforms. KANGAL was originally developed on land platforms to jam IEDs and UAVs. The system can be used standalone or as a part of the İHTAR C-UAS system. KANGAL can jam communication signals on radios, mobile phones, and small UAVs. KANGAL-D would easily integrate on most warships as a lightweight system with volumetrically and electrically sufficient space. The threat of UAVs against naval platforms has recently made it into the spotlight following the Houthi attacks conducted with various types of kamikaze UAVs. Occasionally, expensive solutions like air defence missiles have been used. Using soft-kill measures in tandem with hard-kill solutions can ease engagement and lower the costs of defence against said threats.

Turkish Submarines to Fire Turkish Cruise Missiles Soon
Submarine Fleet Commander Rear Admiral Timur Yılmaz stated that firings of GEZGİN and ATMACA cruise missiles from submarines will commence soon. Timur Yılmaz made the statement during an interview for Defence Turkiye’s 128th issue. Submarine-launched ATMACA will be a counterpart to the U.S.-made Sub-Harpoon and French Exocet’s submarine variant. Submarine-launched anti-ship missiles are launched from the torpedo tubes using a capsule that smoothly brings the missile to the water surface. Upon reaching the surface, the booster is ignited to launch the missile. Submarine-launched ATMACA can provide Turkish submarines with a stand-off attack capability against well-protected groups with MPAs/ASW Helicopters/ASW warships ranging beyond 200 km[i]. However, providing target data to the missile even in flight is as important as gaining the capability to launch the missile. The communication and data-link systems onboard the submarine or other platforms will likely carry said part out. [I]GEZGİN is a long-range cruise missile akin to Tomahawk and Kalibr missiles, mainly intended for land attack. The missile will be used by submarines, warships (MİDLAS VLS), land platforms, and fighter jets. There are no technical specifications of the missile that are available now. Launching land attack cruise missiles from stealthy platforms such as submarines is a type of deterrence stemming from the uncertainty. Underwater launch makes it hard to predict when and where the missile might be launched. The long-range can allow for targeting critical bases and facilities located on the enemy’s mainland.

Wie jetzt, ein Seeziel FK soll auch MPAs und Helikopter anvisieren über eine Distanz von 200km? Sicher nicht.

Nein, das U-Boot kann aus einer sicheren Entfernung heraus mit den AShM mit einer Reichweite >= 200 km einen feindlichen Schiffsverband angreifen. Torpedos dagegen haben eine geringere Reichweite.
