Qatar’s navy on Tuesday signed an agreement to purchase two training warships from Turkey's Anadolu Shipyard, on the sidelines of DIMDEX 2018), which kicked off Monday in the Qatari capital.

The planned ships will have the capacity to train 72 naval cadets, shipyard chairman Sualp Urkmez told Anadolu Agency, adding that both vessels will feature classrooms, training areas, weapons and sensors.

“Qatar needs these ships to provide its naval personnel with sufficient training,” he said, adding that both vessels would be delivered within 36 months.

At the Doha exhibition, Qatari officials signed separate agreements with Turkey's Ares and Yonca-Onuk shipyards for another 17 military vessels, all of which will be outfitted with weapons built by Turkish defense manufacturer Aselsan.
