Comments:
This class was ordered in two batches. The first batch of three ships are called KILIÇ-I and the second batch of remaining 6 as KILIÇ-II. P-330 TCG Kılıç and P-333 TCG Meltem were constructed in Germany, the remaining in Gölcük Naval Shipyard.

These class has a similar hull, machinery as the Doğan and Yıldız classes but are bigger and heavier. The Kılıç class has a redesigned mast and superstructure for reduced radar cross-section.

They can make 24 knots in sea state 5.
