>Noble Manta 2009 continues

>NATO’s largest annual anti-submarine warfare exercise, Noble Manta 2009 is taking place in the Ionian Sea to the Southeast of Sicily. The exercise started on 13 February and will and on 27 February 2009.

Eight NATO nations are providing 6 submarines, 9 surface ships and 13 aircraft to take part in the exercise.

Turkish Navy participates with 2 submarines Ay class S-351 TCG Doğanay and Gür class S-360 TCG I. İnönü and 1 frigate, Gabya class F-495 TCG Gediz. TCG 1.İnönü is the latest submarine of Turkish Navy. She has been commissioned on 22 July 2007.

There is a significant error on the official NATO photo page. This is not the photo of TCG 1.İnönü as stated but of TCG Doğanay. Is NATO so uninformed about its assests?
