>A new naval base in the Black Sea coast

>According to Turkish daily Hürriyet, Turkish Navy is planing to establish a new base in the Black Sea town, Trabzon.

The main naval base of Turkish Navy in the Black Sea region is in Karadeniz Ereğlisi. Karadeniz Ereğlisi is approximately 100 nautical miles east of Bosphorus. And Trabzon is additional 400 nautical miles eastwards.

The plan is to base atleast one submarine and one frigate. The construction of the base will start with routine appointments in summer, the report added but it will take some time to establish the command structure and the necessary logistical infrastructure.

Next time when things start to get ugly in the Caucasus, Turkish naval units will be faster in position.
