TCG Gazal On The News
1 May 2014 2 Comments
The Turkish daily Hürriyet ran a photo reportage on A-587 TCG Gazal. She is one of the few World War 2 veteran ships still remaining in Turkish Navy and is 72 years old.
She was launched in December 1942 as USS Sioux a Cherokee class tug. After 30 years of service in US Navy she was leased to Turkish Navy in 1972 and was renamed as TCG Gazal. The was completely transferred to Turkish Navy in 1973.
