Turkey on Sunday achieved another milestone in its New Type Submarine Project, which looks to boost the capabilities of the Turkish navy in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas.
In a ceremony at the Gölcük Shipyard in northwestern Turkey, the Pirireis, the first submarine developed as part of the project, hit the water in line with the next phase of production. The ceremony also featured the ceremonial welding of the first sheet of metal on the fifth ship, the Seydialireis.
In a speech to mark the occasion, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said a total of six new submarines, one each year, would join the Turkish Naval Forces between 2022 and 2027.
