>TCG Gökova will join CTF-151

>TCG Gökova sailed from Gölcük Naval Base on 27th September 2009, to Gulf of Aden. She will join CTF-151 and will replace TCG Gaziantep which is in the region since July 2009.

TCG Gökova was in the region as part of SNMG-2 between 16th October and 12th December 2008.

Turkish Navy prefers to send Oliver Hazard Perry also known as G class frigates to fight piracy off Somalia. The fuel efficiency of these ships is an important criteria for such missions.

TCG Gökova will remain in Gulf of Aden till February 2010.
