Turkey – Milgem Class Multimission Corvettes – and Aircrafts


Milgem Project Office (MPO) designed and developed the vessel platform. Milgem’s design concept and mission profile is similar to the littoral combat ship (LCS-1) developed by Lockheed Martin. It features a steel hull and fragmentation resistant composite superstructure. The stealth hull design achieves low radar, magnetic, infrared and acoustic signatures.


Designed as a multipurpose corvette, Milgem can be deployed in a range of missions, including reconnaissance, surveillance, target identification, early warning, anti-submarine warfare, surface-to-surface and surface-to-air warfare and amphibious operations.

The Milgem Class corvette is equipped with the UNIMACS 3000 series integrated platform management system (IPMS) developed by YALTES. The system monitors and controls machinery, auxiliary systems, electrical power generation and distribution.

The corvette is equipped with eight Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles and a single mk31 RAM self-defence missile weapon system, which can launch RAM anti-aircraft missiles. The Harpoon missile can strike the targets in a 124km range while travelling at a speed of Mach 0.71.

The ship is fitted with two 324mm mk32 tubes to launch mk46 torpedoes. The torpedo has a range of 7,315m and can attack high-performance submarines.

Corvettes are equipped with an aft flight deck to allow the operation of a S-70B-2 Seahawk helicopter. The aircraft ship-integrated secure and traverse (ASIST) helicopter handling and tracking system, developed by Curtiss-Wright, will ensure the safe landing of helicopters.

The Turkish Navy commissioned TCG Kinaliada, the fourth and final Ada-class corvette built under the MILGEM project, in a ceremony attended by Turkish president Erdoğan.

Kinaliada was built as part of the Turkish defense ministry’s MILGEM project which covers the construction of four Ada-class corvettes, four TF-100-class and four TF-2000-class frigates for the Turkish Navy.

The 99-meter Ada-class corvettes are designed to embark 10-ton ASW/ASUW helicopters and are fitted with Harpoon missiles and a 76 mm gun. They are fitted with the indigenously-developed combat management system GENESİS which is also used on Turkey’s eight G-class frigates.
