I am posting a few more photos from F-805 HNLMS Evertsen.
I must confess that I am very impressed with the cleanliness of her lines. she is the one of the few ships that I have ever seen that has such an uncluttered superstructure.
As the flagship of SNMG-1 she will sail to Gulf Of Aden after departure from Istanbul to relive the SNMG-2 in fight against piracy.
F-805 HNLMS Evertsen has powerful radars, a very sophisticated combat management systems and SAM missiles. Yet despite the mentioned expensive systems, the Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) and the couple .50 machine guns are probably the most effective weapons this ship will employ against piracy. And compared to the value of the SM-2 SAM missiles she carries the LRAD and the machine guns are almost free.
