Yesterday the Arleigh Burke class destroyer DDG-67 USS Cole finished her deployment to the Black Sea and made a southbound passage through the Turkish Straits.

It’s unbelievable that this ships has almost sunk 14 years ago in Yemen after the suicidal boat attack.

On 28 October 2014, the Udaloy class destroyer of Russian Northern Fleet, Vitse Admiral Kulakov has arrived in Aksaz Naval Base for a port visit.

The ship sailed away from her home port Severomorsk, on 15 April 2014. Since then she has been deployed in the Mediterranean. She was in Black Sea for a small overhaul between 14 August and 27 September.

No information was given how long the ship will stay in Turkey.

Republic Day 2014

DSC_6198_1 kopya DSC_6072_1 kopya

Today we are celebrating the 91th anniversary the creation of Turkish Republic.

I am grateful to those who made it possible for me and my family to live in this beautiful country under our own flag.

And I can’t think of a better was to celebrate our independence with a couple of elegantly decorated ships.

Foreign Warships On Bosphorus – Nostalgia Edition

HMS M1

HMS_35

HMS_35_crew

TCG Yavuz

On Saturday I have found these old 4 photos in an antique shop in Istanbul and bought them. I have removed the photos from their old and deteriorated frames.

The first photo shows the British submarine HMS M-1 in Istanbul. Though I have no date on the back of the photo or on the frame I can see snow on the roof of the submarine and on the roofs of the buildings in the back ground. A quick search on the internet provided me with a couple of photos from the same submarine in Istanbul in February 1919. Thus I believe my photo was taken around that time. It can be pretty cold in Istanbul in February.

The second photo shows either an Admiralty Modified R class or a S class Royal Navy destroyer. The next photo was taken on board of this ship with her crew and the mascot dog posing. Again this photo has to be taken during the Allied occupation of Istanbul between 1918 and 1923

The last photo is the only one that had a note on the back: “German battleship ‘Goeben’ at Ismid Nr Constantinople 1918″ . I do not need any notes to identify this beautiful ship, which shaped the history of this nation it was nice to know that the photo was not taken in Istanbul. Some ships of the Ottoman Navy were interned in the Golden Horn in Istanbul while the Goeben / Yavuz was interned in a place near Izmit. This place is know today as the Gölcük Naval Base and is the main base of Turkish Navy.

Foreign Warship On Bosphorus (Part 39)

Just one week after she has left the Black Sea, the ever present French intelligence gathering ship A-759 Dupuy De Lome has returned to the Black Sea. This will be her 6. deployment in this
year so far.

Seahawk Down

Turkish Naval Aviation lost one of its S-70B Seahawk on 12 October 2014. The helicopter took off from the Cengiz Topel Naval Aviation airbase and was heading to Konya as the helicopter collided with a hill killing all servicemen on board.

Lieutenant Commander Deniz Akdeniz,
Sub Lieutenant  Çağrı Ceyhan,
Chief Petty Officer Mehmet Karakaşoğlu,
Chief Petty Officer Ömer Burak Öğüt,

paid the ultimate price for the defence of their country. We will miss them.

Turkish Navy Submarine Rescue Operation

Last week Turkish Navy demonstrated its underwater search and rescue capabilities by using an atmospheric diving suit (ADS).

According to the training scenario the Atılay class submarine TCG Dolunay at a dept of 100 meters, released her distress buoy 13 miles off the coast of Mediterranean city Mersin . When the news of the distresses submarine reached the HQ of the Salvage Command of Turkish Navy the ADS , its pilot and the support crew were flown to İncirlik Air Force base in Adana. From here they were brought to Mersin harbor and loaded to the tug A-590 TCG İnebolu.

When TCG İnebolu arrived to the location of the distressed submarine, the ADS was lowered to the submarine. The pilot inside ADS connected fresh air supply from the surface to the submarine. The circulation of the fresh and used air is vital for the bottomed submarine until further rescue equipment arrives to the scene.

The ADS known as Hardsuit Quantum 1200 by its manufacturer,  Oceanworks, is in operation since 2007 and can operate till 365 meter of depth.  Although it is very risky to submerge a person to such depths having a human on the scene can have some advantages over using ROVs. A similar ADS with a higher depth rating (600m) will be on board  of the submarine rescue mother ship (MOSHIP) A-601 TCG Alemdar when she is commissioned.

Here is a nice video of ADS at work:
