Notes on Action


List originNWF
The list of vessels for the Ottoman fleet is based on the latest research carried out by Emir Yenir and his collegue Levent Düzcü in the Ottoman Archives. Partially based on "Document ID: Cevdet Bahriye 2517; Document Date: 15 Ramazan 1204 (29 May 1790)". Which is an inspection list of the Ottoman ships sent to Black Sea and the Mediterranean for the 1790 campaign year.
