The first Turkish submarine "Piri Reis" with VNEU project Type-214TN entered the testing stage

The newest Turkish submarine, Piri Reis, Project Type-214TN, with an air-independent power plant (AIP), is beginning to undergo testing. According to Naval News, the submarine was launched on March 23 at the shipyard in the city of Golcuk in northwestern Turkey.


Piri Reis is the first Turkish diesel-electric submarine built according to the modernized German project "Type-214TN". Named after a Turkish navigator and cartographer of the Ottoman Empire. Laid down in 2015, it was first launched in December 2019 and was supposed to be completed afloat. Commissioning of the submarine is scheduled for 2022. In total, by 2027, Turkey should receive six Type-214TN diesel-electric submarines.

The submarines are being built in cooperation with the largest German shipyard HDW (Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft), the contract was signed in 2009. HDW only assembles major hull and mechanical assemblies and some secret components, including fuel cells and propulsion systems. All electronic components and weapon systems are manufactured and installed in Turkey.

The Type-214TN project itself was developed on the basis of the German Type-214 submarines, which are the export version of the Type-212.

The length of the submarine is 68,4 meters, the width of the hull is 6,3 meters, the total underwater displacement is 1860 tons. The boats are manufactured using stealth technologies, equipped with a combined diesel-electric / anaerobic (VNEU fuel cell) power plant. The declared duration of being under water is more than 10 days. Speed ​​under water - up to 20 knots, on the surface - 12 knots. The immersion depth is up to 400 meters. Crew - 40 people.

The Type-214 submarines have eight 533-mm torpedo tubes and are armed with heavy Mk 48 torpedoes, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, and in the future, Atmaca anti-ship missiles. They can set up minefields.

      The Turkish fleet has long surpassed the Russian Black Sea fleet several times, but so far the Turks do not have an echeloned air defense system and a stronger air force is nullifying their advantage.
      All of their Black Sea coast, including Stanbul and Ankara, in the affected area of ​​the Aerospace Forces, in the future, ground-based OTRK.
      Once again, the sale of the S-400 to them and even the talk about the sale of the Su-35 \ 57 is a betrayal of Russia's interests.

          What prevented? USA and EU refused (!!!) sell Patriot and Aster to the Turks, only after that did they start looking for other options, at first they chose the Chinese FD-2000, but it didn't work out, then only the S-400. In the west, they clearly understand what the building of a national air defense system of Turkey may threaten.

            In that order?
            ... "We have repeatedly warned Turkey that our last proposal for the Patriot will be withdrawn if it accepts the S-400 complexes. The term of our proposal for the Patriot has expired," the source said. In December 2018, the US State Department announced that it had approved a possible $ 3,5 billion sale of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to Turkey.

                I read a little on the topic.
                Kommersant wrote in February 2019:
                ... The United States does not provide guarantees for a loan and joint production, Hurriyet newspaper reported, citing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. These were the two main conditions for the purchase of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) from the United States.

                I think Erdogan wanted to blackmail the states and take advantage of the threat from the Russian system to get partial technology from the Americans.
                But I found a scythe on a stone.

            Well, if it hadn't worked out with us, we could have shifted with the Chinese .. as an option. A holy place is never empty ..
            this is a philistine reasoning, it is unlikely that the top officials could not have thought of such an ordinary thing.

          The Turks bully the Greeks every other day, violating the border.
          In NATO, their air force was developed against us, and air defense was specially limited. To shorten the attacks on Greece. Therefore, the same Greek S-300 were integrated into the air defense system. hi
          The deliveries of the S-400 severely spoiled relations with the Greeks. Alas.
          But the pluses obtained outweigh the minuses IMHO.

        Perhaps the GDP and the General Staff proceeded from the position that "keep your friends close, and the enemy even closer"?
        In the sense that in the case of the operation of the S-400 against Russia, their incorrect work cannot be ruled out.
        And they would have received a missile defense / air defense system like this: although the Patriot is twice as expensive and not a fact that it is better than the S-300P, it is clearly integrated into the Aegis, and possibly into the target designation system via satellite RSL (I don’t remember how NATO calls them).
        Let me remind you that Pedrogan made the decision to purchase the S-400 after the SRU, together with the progressive warriors of Turkestan, wanted to overthrow the Tsar of Osmania, and Moscow prevented this.

        Well, they lost something from line to line. On one they forgot to transfer to another, as a result, she slipped through the PLO line and where it went unclear (well, it is clear that she went closer to Eisenhower) - so they were looking for her as best they could.

        However, in general, even a museum-type roaring cow 613 can be found in the sea, so it’s not so easy without the initial problem. And Iranian boats also sometimes surprise especially unusual Europeans. Although everything is extremely primitive there. Therefore, in fact, it is unclear the panic in the media from the sinking of the boat to showing to the bourgeoisie.

        And this does not in any way negate the complete failure in boats of a new type and VNEU. In fact, the fleet received the 636 project for only one reason - everything was exported to it. Vietnam and Algeria bought, Egypt chose Germany, Thailand and Pakistan - China, India - France, Indonesia - South Korea. The Admiralty shipyard faced the real fate of VASO - that is, the dismissal of the collective in whole workshops, a 3-day week, etc. And the native Ministry of Defense helped, ordering first a batch for the Black Sea Fleet, and then for the Pacific Fleet.

    Be that as it may - NATO is entirely for us, yes, a comparable adversary (however, like the United States itself), but Turkey, taken separately, simply does not. And they and we know it, just no one says it out loud.
