Comments:
In 1999, the German shipyards Abeking & Rasmussen and Lürssen Werft were awarded with the contract about 630 million US Dollar, of building 6 mine hunters. The contract was signed on 30 July 1999. The design is very similar to Type 332 mine hunters in German Navy.

First ship was built in Germany; reminder in Istanbul Naval Yard. Contrary to the widely adopted use of GPR, these ships are made of non-magnetic steel. The design is very similar to Type 332 mine hunters in German Navy. Thus the Turkish Navy became the second navy using non-magnetic steel in NATO for mine hunters besides German Navy

Each ship will have 2 PAP-105 Mk5 mine counter system and Nautis-3M command and control system. The Type 2093 variable depth sonar is hull mounted and can operate up to 200m depth and up to 12 knots.
