The naval special forces demonstrated how to infiltrate into a ship and capture it on board of the replenishment tanker A-580 TCG Akar. This is a much needed exercise considering that there is always a special forces team on board of the Turkish frigates conducting anti piracy operations in Gulf Of Aden.
