    Earlier this week, Turkey launched its largest naval exercise across the three seas it borders. The drills, dubbed Denizkurdu-2019 (Sea Wolf), feature 131 warships, 57 warplanes and 33 helicopters.

    Turkish media has released footage showing a Greek assault vessel performing dangerous manoevers near a Turkish corvette during the Sea Wolf (Denizkurdu) 2019 military exercises.

    On May 14, the Turkish Defence Ministry announced the start of large-scale naval drills that would last until May 25. According to the ministry, the Turkish Navy would carry out strategic and operational exercises that simulate real-life wartime and crisis situations, and also test its warships' anti-missile defence systems.
