The Turkish defence magazine Defence And Aerospace run two photos that I have taken, in their last issue. Both photos show the newly installed VLS on the Gabya (ex Perry) class frigates. The magazine is about to hit the newsstands soon.

Don’t forget to buy the January 2013 Issue of Warships International Fleet Review. I am on the cover. Mr. Guy Toremans did the interview with the CO of F-511 TCG Heybeliada and toured the ship.


>Seaforth World Naval Review 2011


The 2011 edition of Seaforth World Naval Review has been published.
Though it was launched just 3 years ago, it has established a good reputation among enthusiast, researchers and students of maritime issues.
For the first time, this edition has an 8 page chapter devoted to the current operations and ship acquisition projects of Turkish Navy and it was written by yours truly.
I am very exited to see my name to be listed as a contributor among some of the most influent and prolific writers on naval subjects such as Norman Friedman, Scott Truver, Mrityunjoy Mazumdar and Conrad Waters.
My contract with the publisher forbids me to publicize what I have written, here in my blog. But I can mention the highlights:
  • ‘G’ Class Frigate Modernisation
  • The Milgem Corvette Project
  • Coastal Patrol Boats
  • Coast Guard Search And Rescue Ships
  • Aip-Equipped Submarines
  • Amphibious Ship Acquisitions
I have enjoyed writing about Turkish Navy for Seaforth NRW very much, so I hope you will enjoy reading it.
The book can be bought from amazon.com or directly from Seaforth Publishing.

>Jane’s Fighting Ships

Yesterday I have received my personal complementary copy of Jane’s Fighting Ships.

Every year since 1991, I feel the same excitement and joy when hold that years edition for the first time.

This year I am happy to see that my photos of USS McFaul and WHEC Dallas were printed. I have taken the photos of both ships when they were passing through Bosphorus northbound, shortly after the Russo-Georgian War.

I am also happy to see that one of the photos of a very good friend of mine, Arda Mevlütoğlu, was published as well.
