turumaji posted a topic in Modern WarshipsA few days ago two interesting ships passed through the Bosphorus... The first ship was M/V Sigrid. She is a Swedish flagged merchant ship. I believe she is on her maiden voyage to from the Daamen Shipyard in Galati, Romania to her home Sweden. She is designed to carry 12 twelve nuclear waste containers. I am glad that she was not carrying nuclear fuel or waste as she passed through my city. The second ship to pass through the Turkish Straits was the flag ship of the US Sixth Fleet, LCC-20 USS Mount Whitney.
