    Turkey Completes Sub Upgrades



    ANKARA — Turkey has completed upgrades on two Ay-class submarines, contractor STM said Thursday.

    STM, an Ankara-based defense technologies company, said that it finished the upgrades which it had started four-and-a-half years ago. The upgraded Turkish submarines are the TCG Dognap and TCG Tolunay.

    STM said this is the first time a Turkish non-military company has completed a program as prime contractor.

    The upgrade program involved modernization of electronic support units, attack systems, cruise systems and cruise periscopes.

    The upgrades were done at the Turkish Navy's Golcuk Shipyards Command southwest of Istanbul on the Marmara Sea coast.

    STM said it also will provide local content to Turkey's national submarine production program.

    They were on high alert,some subs frigates and a corvette were in the area but they didnt do anything.
    The flotilla incident is a complicated one,let me just say that Erdogan needed votes and this was the way to get it.
    He had alot of help from his islamist,Muslim Brotherhood buddies from the IHH.
