>The Americans Are Here Too


FFG-50 USS Taylor, crew members participated in a compliant visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) exercise with the Turkish navy frigate F240 TCG Yavuz  July 19, during exercise Sea Breeze 2010.

The two ships used the training opportunity to familiarize themselves with each other’s VBSS equipment and techniques, which is remarkably very similar as most of the Turkish naval procedures for such operations are derivate directly from US manuals.
