The greatest exercise they have ever carried out is the Turkish armed forces with their Navy in the three waters that are raining the country.

According to the General Staff, 131 warships, 57 airplanes and 33 helicopters participate in the “Thalassolokos 2019” exercise, which has already begun in the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Black Sea and will be completed on 25 May.

The Turkish press reports that the new exercise will include strategic scenarios of war and more widespread crises. “In this way, the Turkish naval forces will consolidate their power and sovereignty in the seas and will give the largest response to Turkey’s constraining policies, especially in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean,” the sources said.
