>Turkish Navy Naval Parade In Dardanelles

>On Friday, 18 March 2011, to commemorate the 96th anniversary of the victory against the Allied Fleet in 18 March 1915,  Turkish Navy organized a naval parade in Dardanelles.

It meant a 25 hours round trip to Çanakkale for me, to watch the parade, take photos of the participating ships and return home.

But it was worth it and it was fun.

Following ships took part in the parade:

F-245 TCG Oruçreis

F-244 TCG Barbaros

F-240 TCG Yavuz

F-495 TCG Gediz with MK-41 VLS

P-338 TCG Atak

P-331 TCG Kalkan

P-330 TCG Kılıç

SG-312 TCSG-312 with STAMP

SG-308 TCSG-308 with STAMP

SG-93 TCSG-93

SG-94 TCSG-94

Additionally, I was able to take photos of the following ships and vessels:

209 Type 1200 class submarine 

209 Type 1100 class submarine

F-243 TCG Yıldırım

SG-4 TCSG-4

SG-15 TCSG-15

SG-16 TCSG-16

SG-84 TCSG-84

Y-161 TCG Öncü

    >Which Naval Victory are you celebrating? What you did was just sinking one or two Allied ships with coast artillery and mines. The rest of the Ottoman fleet has been chased out of the Aegean and the Black sea !

    >Anonymous the second;the victory we are celebrating is not just a naval one. It's not just a dramatic war without reason -like many started by militarily powerful nations- but also the starting point of our republic and the soul gained by the victory in return of the loss of the hundreds of thousands of brave ones; making it of enormous importance. As of the naval side of this war; Ottoman Empire was weak and kept losing over and over against foes like greeks bulgarians and russians just before this war. Self confidence of the nation; there were none to mention. And to be honest people were right not to trust their goverment. The western states were even greater than the the states mentioned above and their great naval vessels were there to attack. Just try to emphatise and understand the situation. And now think about the attacking british and french sides. They were arrogant at least to say. Thus the sinking of the best ships out there of their time maybe were not that important to you -even if i disagree- but showing your entire nation that the enemy can be damaged and maybe stopped and giving them the guts to stand against the invasion is priceless…don't you think?And even it's not right to compare and not even close but think this way; what would happen today, libya somehow manage to sink De Gaule carrier?

The rest of the Ottoman fleet has been chased out of the Aegean and the Black sea !^^^^^^Hey moron panzy, trolling WAFF was not sufficient, so you decided to troll this great site? Here is what you wrote there:"The Turks were shooting rounds from coastal artillery batteries sinking 1 French ship, basically that was it! The Russians had routed the Ottoman Navy from the Black Sea while the Franco-British fleet in the Aegean had confined it into its naval station in Constantinople."Even if they gave you your lesson, looks like your thick head failed to understand that. As always good work Saturn5
