>Black Sea Cruise Of Several Turkish Warships

>Apparently some Turkish warships are conducting a public relations / soft power cruise along the Black Sea coast.

On 10th June Wednesday, frigates F-240 TCG Yavuz (Meko 200 TN class); F-245 TCG Oruçreis (Meko 200 TN IIA class); F-246 TCG Salihreis (Meko 200 TN IIBclass), F-496 TCG Gökova (Perry class); submarine S-352 TCG Dolunay, fast attack crafts P-337 TCG Atak (Kılıç II class), P-334 TCG Rüzgar and logistic support ships A-595 TCG Yarbay Kudret Güngör visited town of İnebolu.

On 12th June Friday, F-240 TCG Yavuz; F-246 TCG Salihreis and S-352 TCG Dolunay, arrived in Sinop.

On 13th June Saturday (today), F-240 TCG Yavuz; F-246 TCG Salihreis are in Giresun.

Other major cities on the Black Sea coast Trabzon and Rize can be the next ports of call.

Such cruises along the coast with frequent port calls, where public can visit a warship, is an effective way of establishing a good profile in public opinion. And they are also a good way to promote people to join the navy as well.
