Un unità molto ben armata per le sue dimensioni, di certo è un ottimo balzo in avanti per la flotta da pattugliamento turca.


P.S. Il contributo tedesco o comunque straniero c'è ancora o è una realizzazione completamente nazionale? (parlo di progetto e costruzione dello scafo, non, ovviamente, degli equipaggiamenti giocoforza importati)

Hull appendages and form optimization and model trials are made by Istanbul Technical University. IR signature forecast and management, electromagnetic compatibility and degaussing system design and integration projects were responsibility of TUBITAK. Any foreign contribution is beyond my knowledge...

Evolution of the Milgem program

When the Milgem project was officially launched in 1996, the initial plan was to locally build MEKO A-100 corvettes of Blohm+Voss, a German shipbuilding company which specializes in building high technology warships and submarines.


In the early 2000s, the partnership plan with Blohm+Voss was shelved and the Turkish Navy decided to design and build a completely indigenous corvette. Istanbul Naval Shipyard Command executes and coordinates the design, development and construction works of the Milgem project since 12 March 2004.


The design concept and mission profile of Milgem bears similarities with the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS-1) developed by Lockheed Martin as the first member of the next generation of USN warships.

È molto duro valutare il costo della prima nave. Ma le speculazioni sono di circa 400 milione dollari. Il costo delle altre navi può cadere inferiore a 300 milioni. La maggior parte dei sistemi stranieri saranno cambiati con le versioni turche in futuro. 12 navi saranno costruite. Inoltre ci è la speculazione circa 4 navi per il pakistan.


It is very hard to estimate the cost of the first ship. But the speculations are about 400 million dollars. The cost of the other ships may drop below 300 million.Most foreign systems will be changed with turkish versions in future. 12 ships will be built. Also there is speculation about 4 ships for pakistan
