The Turkish state-controlled shipyard İstanbul Tersanesi Komutanlığı (ITK) located in the Pendik District of Istanbul launched the third Ada-class combat corvette for Turkish Naval Forces Command (TNFC) on 18 June.

The ship, TCG Burgazada (F513) will be commissioned by the TNFC in 2018 and will complement TCG Heybeliada (F511) and TCG Buyukada (F512) ships. A fourth unit TCG Kınalıada (F514) is being built by ITK according to the country’s MILGEM (Milli Gemi) project. A batch of four MILGEM-based I-class frigates will be built in Turkey from January 2017.
