TCG MuavenetFour ships of the Türk Deniz Kuvvetleri (the Turkish Navy) have been named Muavenet. The name means "support"; the later ships were named in honor of the first.
The second Muavenet, ex-HMS Inconstant (H-49), was a destroyer ordered by Turkey to be built in England, but delayed in delivery by World War II.
Another Muavenet (DM-357), ex-USS Gwin (DD-772), was crippled by missiles from USS Saratoga (CV-60).
