In, the last 4 days we have again witnessed an increased activity of warships passing through Turkish Straits.

On 1 July 2015 very late in the evening Spanish mine hunter passed though Bosphorus and deployed to Varna Bulgaria. She was in Erdek for the Change of Command Ceremony of NATO Mine Countermeasures Group Two . Unfortunately there is no photo of this passage available.

On 2 July 2015 the two Russian Ropuchas Alexander Otrakovski and Korolev returnd tothe Black Sea from their Syrian deployment.

On 4 July 2015, the Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 consisting of F-334 NRP D. Francisco de Almeida and F-803 HNLMS Tromp passed sneaked through Istanbul Strait. Their passage is covered here.

On 5 July 2015 the French intelligence gathering ship Dupuy De Lôme made her southbound passage. This was not expected as a NATO naval exercise is about to begin in the Black Sea. Thus this spy ship could be very handy in the Black Sea.

Later the same day US Navy destroyer DDG-78 USS Porter made her north bound transit through the Turkish Straits. She is taking part in the Bulgarian naval exercise Breeze 2015.

NATO Mine Countermeasures Group Two is not the only NATO naval task force deployed to Bulgaria this weekend.

On 4 July 2015 late in the night at 22.30 local time the SNMG-1 ships F-334 NRP D. Francisco de Almeida and F-803 HNLMS Tromp passed through Istanbul Strait. According to the publicly available information both ships have arrive at Varna port on 5 July 2015. They are going to take part in Breeze 2015 naval exercise.

Foreign warships do usually pass through the Turkish Straits in day light. The Montreux Convention orders only the submarines of Black Sea nations to pass through the Turkish Straits at day time. The transit passages of foreign warships through Turkish Straits must start in day time. The Convention does not openly regulates the ending of the transit passage of foreign warships. Never the less I must say that the timing of these warships was particular peculiar.

Both NRP D. Francisco de Almeida and F-803 HNLMS Tromp are actuality very beautiful Dutch ships (though the former is now under Portuguese flag) which do not need to hide themselves in the darkness of the night.

The word photography means writing with light. And as we all know the single largest and the most important source of light on earth is our sun. Thus photography is more fun when the sun is up. And the results are far more better.

But as you can see from the results day or night the ship spotters in Istanbul are ready to document the foreign warships passing through our beautiful city.

On Friday in the early morning hours, the Russian Ropucha class large landing ship Alexander Otrakovski returned from her Syrian deployment. Her companion Alexander Shabalin was in Alexandria, Egypt for the Russian Egyptian joint naval exercise Friendship Bridge 2015.

On the same day later in the afternoon the tug Shaktar returned to the Mediterranean. She was in the Black Sea since mid January.

Today the Russian Ropuchas were active. One of the Baltic Fleet’s ships 130 Konolev made her northbound passage. It’s the first time she was deployed in this region and first time she will take part in cargo hauling to Syria.

Another ship that we have not seen for a long time was the south bound 158 Tsezar Kunikov. This Black Sea Fleet ship was in Bulgaria for an overhaul. Her companion was Novocharkassk.

We had witnessed a lot of Russian naval traffic in the last 4 days. First the landing ships Azov and Novocharkassk returned from their Mediterranean deployment on Sunday. Immediately one day later a new couple of landing ships Alexander Shabalin and Alexander Otrakovski  were observed making a southbound passage.

And today the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, cruiser Moskva and the replenishment tanker Ivan Bubnov made their southbound passages through Turkish Straits. Moskva made her first southbound passage through Turkish Straits mid April to participate in the Sino-Russian naval exercise in the Med and returned for a 7 day stop.

We had a lovely weekend for ship spotters in Istanbul. On Saturday, the Russian landing ships Alexander Otrakovski and Alexander Shabalin made their northbound passage. The ships seem to be loaded. That is of course my speculation. But if they were loaded what would they be bringing back on their Syrian Express deployment?

Shortly after the Russian ships started their northbound passage, US Navy destroyer USS Ross has arrived as advertised previously by US Navy. She followed the Russian landing ships as she proceeded to the Black Sea.

At the same time 3 Chinese warships were also in Marmara Sea and they were expected to arrive. But they have arrived early in the next morning. But that is another story.

On Sunday the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Slava class cruiser Moskva returned to the Black Sea. She was deployed 9 days ago to take part in the Sino Russian naval exercise in the Mediterranean.
