This morning around 9.00 the Karel Doorman class frigate from Belgian Naval Forces F-930 BNS Leopold 1 arrived in Istanbul for a port visit.

The duration of the port visit is not disclosed. As far as I know, this is the first visit of BNS Leopold 1 in Istanbul. She is returning home from EU anti piracy mission Atalanta.

Kaliningrad Back In Her Home Waters

The Ropucha class large landing ship of the Baltic Fleet, Kaliningrad returned to her home port at the end of November. For 12 months she was assigned to the Black Sea Fleet and made several transport runs for the so-called Syrian Express operations.

Another Ropucha class landing ship from the Baltic Fleet, Alexander Shabalin replaced Kaliningrad.

The photo was sent by Mr. Körnefeldt from Helsingborg, Sweden.

The Russian large landing ship 151 Azov left the Black Sea after a long period of absence. this will be the third deployment of this ship in 2014.

The Baltic Fleet warship 110 Kaliningrad, which was very active this year in Syrian Express Operations, is returning to the Baltic Fleet. This explains why her companion Novocharkassk, returned alone from Syrian deployment. She was replaced by Alexander Shabalin.

The Russian large landing ship Alexander Shabalin returned to the Black Sea after a long period of absence. A ship of the Russian Baltic Fleet, she will most probably replace one of the other Ropucha’s which are running the scheduled “the Syrian Express”

Today, Turkish Navy announced the retirement of Atılay class (209 Type 1200) submarine TCG Saldıray.

TCG Saldıray was the second of her class and was built in Kiel Germany. She was launched in 1974 and commissioned in Turkish Navy in 1977. There were news about an explosion in her, while she was in Gölcük Naval base. But these stories were never ever commented by Turkish Navy.  Earlier this year she took part in Beyaz Fırtına 2014 naval exercise and fired a torpedo to a target ship.

On 14 November 2014, her final day in commission, she made a farewell cruise with her active and former crew.

We thank TCG Saldıray and her crew for serving us 37 years.
