>More Photos Of President Assad On Board TCSG-303


The website of the presidency of the Republic of Turkey published photos and a video of the ride of the two presidents on board TCSG-303.

According to the photos they seem to have enjoyed the ride very much.

In the video (the second from top) at  point 01:10 one unseen sailor announces the speed as “36 knots and increasing”. This is quite a speed to cruise in Bosphorus.

It is pity that TCSG-303 was not equipped with Stabilized Machine gun Platform (STAMP) like her sister TCSG-307. I believe the ride would be more impressive, if Turkish Coast Guard were able to show the performance of the STAMP too.
