The bow section (Section 50), containing submarine torpedo tubes, was produced for the first time in Turkey with domestic and national resources, under STM’s engineering and coordination, which only a limited number of countries in the world can produce. The first Section 50 produced for Reis class submarines was delivered to Gölcük Shipyard Command.

Another critical phase was completed in the New Type Submarine Project, initiated by the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB) for the Turkish Naval Forces Command, one of the most effective navies in the world. The bow section (Section 50), containing submarine torpedo tubes, was produced for the first time at Gürdesan Shipyard in Turkey with domestic and national resources, under the engineering and coordination of STM. The first Section 50, produced for Reis class submarines, was delivered on September 13, 2021 from Gürdesan Shipyard in Yalova to Gölcük Shipyard Command. The first Section 50, produced with national resources, will be integrated into Murat Reis, the 3rd New Type Submarine.
