TCG Anadolu is a planned amphibious assault ship of the Turkish navy. It is to be named after the region of Anatolia (Anadolu in Turkish), which forms the core of Turkey. The construction is taking place at Sedef Shipbuilding Inc. in Istanbul and is expected to be completed in 2021.
The Sedef–Navantia consortium won the tender for the LPD/LHD Strategic Projection Vessel project and TCG Anadolu will use the same design as that of the Spanish ship Juan Carlos I. All of the ship's weapons system will be procured by Turkish firms Havelsan and ASELSAN.
