>Sea Of Friendship 2010


Turkish and Egyptian navies will take part in exercise called   Bahr El-Muhabbe Sea of Friendship between 29 September and 4 October 2010. The exercise will be hosted by Egypt and will be executed in Eastern Mediterranean.
The aim of the exercise is to develop mutual cooperation and interoperability between two navies.
Turkey will send two frigates, one replenishment ship, one helicopter and one special forces team. Egypt will submit two frigates, one submarine, two patrol boats, one auxiliary three helicopters, one special forces teams and aircraft.
The location and the timing of this exercise are well worth of noting. And further more my inner voice tells me that at least one ex- Perry class frigate from both navies will take part in this exercise.  And on board of Turkish G class frigate the Turkish officers will show off their modern CIC and the GENESIS modernization to their Egyptian counterparts.
