Today the President of Turkmenistan, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the country Serdar Berdimuhamedov, being in the annual leave inn Balkan velayat, has visited “Garşy” military unit of the Naval Forces located in the western region and got acquainted with the corvette class military vessel “Deňiz han”.
As the news program “Watan” reported, “Garşy” military unit was opened and put into service with the personal participation of ex-President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
The military unit has a berth for military vessels, where the corvette class ship “Deňiz han”, built with the participation of domestic professionals at a shipyard of the Naval Forces of the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan, was moored.
It should be noted that this combat vessel opened the review of the Navy at the solemn parade held on October 27, 2021 on the occasion of celebrating the 30th anniversary of independence of country. Sailors perform irreproachable service on such modern warships and stand vigilantly on guard of the sea borders of Turkmenistan.
Then, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov learnt in detail about the combat capabilities, technical specifications and design features of a modern vessel, its functions and compartments. “Deňiz han” is designed to hit submarines and surface warships, single land and air targets, as well as targets of the enemy’s navy strike groups. At the same time, it performs such tasks as destroying the fleet and landing troops of the enemy, protecting the domestic forces, conducting integrated reconnaissance, monitoring surface, underwater and air spaces, protecting the state border at sea, maintaining the safety of navigation and carrying out rescue operations.
The ship’s crewmembers undergo special training and improve their skills in a number of countries around the world, in particular in Italy, Germany, Türkiye, etc.
The ship also has everything necessary for the effective service and recreation of officers and military sailors.
Then the President of the country proceeded to the administrative building of the military unit, where he asked about the possibilities of an automated workplace for operational duty officers.
The advanced technologies and digital system installed here, the electronic map, as well as the special software for the information and control system developed by the officers of the country’s Naval services, allow for the constant monitoring of passenger and military ships in the Caspian Sea. Radar equipment is used to watch the coastal part of the sea, as well as technical systems available on board of the combat ships.
Using the digital and satellite navigation systems, the location of ships, their provision with fuel and water are identified, which makes it possible to maintain constant communication with warships from the command post. The collected information is accumulated and processed in the management department. The equipment available facilitates the performance of basic functional duties and allows for quickly sending information to the destination.
