The Milgem corvette had severe leakage problems during tests after installation of her main MTU propulsion system but could be saved by pump systems of the assisting two tugboats.
The corvette is now in a dry dock untill modifications on the hull are completed. The mishap is expected to delay the construction works for about 8 months.

This sucks ass, MILGEM's propulsion system is pretty conventional, its not like its got waterjet propulsion! If its leaking it would be leaking in the cooling water intake or at the propeller shaft seals, I dont see how it could take 8 months to fix unless there is a significant design flaw.

You tried to push the limits maybe, in terms of interior space or something similar and it backfired.

Maybe flooding, which according to articles was severe, damaged essential electronics, insulation etc that may take time to rebuild since there is no stock of anything for such new design.

Anyway, this should be expected among the "baby" mishaps that are expected in new ships.

More bad news the Milgem corvette TCG Heybeliada scheduled for completion on October 25, 2010 has been re-scheduled to september 28 2011.

With following sea trials and testing of the weapon systems this will mean that official inauguration may occur in 2012 or bad case even 2013.

I have problems with virus on my homecomputer so I couldn't scan the article, I'll use the scanner at my work and put it here at the end of the day.

I second this notion.

It sounds like Nutuks story is too far fetched, exaggerated to its full length, much like his claims on Sabra 3 when there are Sabra I and II operational in Israel

Honestly i am amazing by this self-judgment air that blows in the forum.

Anyway , we have yet to see some link that give a little more credit to your claims about the ship man.

Might be Nutuks way of Fun,to see greek reaction.,must admit it has been generally subdued funny enough.

I don't know if this link from the Greek side verifies anything. However, it does seem to confirm what Nutuk has posted.

New programs are riddled with problems and are to be expected. For all those who flame about Papanikolis, what have you got to say about your own program?

No system in whatever industry we discuss is without initial problems. Some are more serious than others.
