While Turkish Navy Forces already operate a dozen attack submarines in its fleet (all based in original diesel-electric-powered German designs), the service intends to add six more hulls under a license agreement with Germany to replicate the Type 214 (introduced in 2007) locally. This class, known as the "Reis-class" (formerly the "Cerbe-class"), began construction in 2015 and will result in a half-dozen capable, conventionally-powered boats - each armed through 8 x Torpedo tubes and displacing 2,040 tons (short) submerged. Several local Turkish companies - including ASELSAN and HAVELSAN - are involved in the direct-construction of the submarines.

Beyond their capability to fire torpedoes, the boats will also be granted an inherent ability to fire Anti-Ship Missiles (ASMs) and release naval mines.

Dimensions of the boats including a running length of 224 feet and a beam of 20.6 feet. Installed power is a Siemens Permasyn arrangement generating 5,200 horsepower. The arrangement encompasses 2 x MTU 16V 396SE 64L cell diesel generators, 2 x 324 Type 30PS15B battery sets, and 2 x Siemens fuel cells of 160 horsepower each.

Key to the Type 214 design it?s the fuel-cell-based "Air-Independent Propulsion" (AIP) system, allowing the boats to remain submerged for longer periods. The Type 212 model utilizing this system can remain underwater for a period of up to twenty-one days. The onboard complement will number forty-one total personnel. Installed systems will include the ISUS 90-72 series sonar and weapons control system.

The class is expected to be made up of TCG Pirireis, TCG Hizirreis, TCG Aydinreis, TCG Seydialireis, and TCG Selmanreis. Pirireis saw he keel laid down on September 28th, 2015. She entered dry dock in December of 2019 and sea trials began in December of 2022.

The Reis-class is set to take over duties from the aging Atilay-class, four hulls all of which have exceeded at least thirty years of faithful service.
