Description: The Turkish Navy MILGEM project is a next generation, affordable class of corvettes/light frigates intended for patrol, anti-surface (ASuW) and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions. Designed in Turkey, Istanbul Naval Shipyard is the prime contractor with Aselsan, Havelsan and Yates integrating key electronic equipments and the ship's advanced command and control system. The ship features low life cycle costs, high survivability, shock resistance, excellent seakeeping characteristics, high reliability, and stealth hull design achieving low radar, magnetic, infrared and acoustic signatures. The MILGEM project includes construction of four corvettes and eight light frigates called TF100 and TF2000.

The Ada-class corvettes are provided with an aft flight deck allowing for operation of a single S-70B-2 Seahawk helicopter. The weapon system includes a 76mm dual-purpose gun, two 12.7mm remotely controlled machine guns, eight Harpoon anti-ship missiles, a single MK31 RAM self-defense missile weapon system and Mark 46 torpedoes. The Turkish Navy commissioned the lead ship, named Heybeliada, in September 2011 with three more ships to follow. In 2017 Pakistan ordered four MILGEM Block I corvettes.
