Frigates and destroyers are to be deployed to the Black Sea, the Aegean and the Mediterranean for the “Blue Homeland” drills between Feb. 27 and March 8, and will be joined by Turkish warplanes and army units.

Turkish Naval command is counting the days for the most comprehensive exercise on its history.

The “Blue Homeland” (Mavi Vatan in Turkish) exercise, which will be held with a hundred warships in the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Black Sea starts on February 27th.

All the striking powers of the Turkish Navy are sailing to the seas surrounding Turkey.

With the support of the air and ground forces, the Naval Forces Command will begin the blue Homeland exercise on February 27th,the most comprehensive exercise in the history of the Turkish Republic.

Turkish Navy frigates and corvetes will sail to the Aegean and the Mediterranean with full battle load from Gölcük and Aksaz main naval bases. Real bullets and ammunition will be used in the exercise.

A total of 102 battleships, including submarines, MİLGEM corvetes and landing vessels will take part in Blue Motherland exercise.

The Turkish Military Department has included all of her powers in this giant war rehearsal and training.

The national ammunitions named as Cirit and UMTAS will be used for the first time in the sea. T-129 ATAK attack helicopters from the Turkish Land Forces and 20 fighter jets will also be part of the exercise.

The Turkish army will use the frigates and the corvetes that will hit the targets on the water, air-defense missiles will be fired from vessels to unmanned target planes,and ground bombardment will be performed.

The naval forces' elite troops- SAS and SAT troops- will perform amphibious operation.

As per the scenario, these elite forces will capture enemy troops.
