Comments:
Improved and larger successors of Atılay class submarines. They were constructed locally with German assistance.

The endurance of these boats is very good. Between 24 October 1997 and 3 February 1998 TCG Preveze sailed alone from Turkey to Malaysia and back in order to show flag and to promote Turkey’s ship building capabilities at the LIMA 97 Defense Exhibition. In 2011, TCG Preveze performed the longest submerged cruise of Turkish silent service and she stayed continuously submerged for consecutive 32 days during the Operation Unified Protector.

Each submarine has one Mark 76 Attack and one Mark 76 Search periscope manufactured by Kollmorgen.Diving depth is 250 m.

In April 1999 BAe (STN Atlas) DM2A4 heavy torpedo (40+ training torpedoes) was selected for cost of $40 million
