>TCG Gökçeada Sails To The Gulf Of Aden And Turkey Will Lead CTF-151 Again

>Today Turkish frigate F-494 TCG Gökçeada departed from Aksaz Naval base to Gulf of Aden.

TCG Gökçeada will serve under the international anti-piracy mission, CTF-151, to fight piracy and carry out surveillance tasks.

According to some Turkish internet news portals she will replace TCG Gelibolu. This is unlikely as TCG Gelibolu is in SNMG-2 but on the other hand she is in the region since February and her replacement may be due.

Turkish admiral of the ship will take over the command of CTF 151 on September 1 and TCG Gökçeada will serve as the command ship for three months.

  1. >As you pointed out, Gelibolu did not participate in CTF-151. However I think she is on the list, together with Gokceada, 6 of the 8 Gabya class frigates has participated in CTF-151. It seems Turkish Navy is testing the capabilities of GENESIS while improving interoperability experience.
