One of the most interesting presentations of the 7. Naval System Seminar was done by Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (UDI). The topic of it was the future shipbuilding projects.
The organisers of Naval System Seminar prepare a CD containing the presentations done during it to be distributed to the participants which is a useful thing if you want to reread the presentation later at home.
However the UDI was either too lazy or too arrogant to send the presentation to the organisers so their presentation is not included in the CD. Therefore you have to content with the table I have preapred from my notes and memory.
There are 20 acquisition projects related to Turkish navy and Turkish coast guard. Of these 20 project UDI is working on 13 of them.
