According to NATO Maritime Command, Turkish Navy's Aydın class minehunter TCG Akçay discovered a mine probably a relic of Second World War while conducting training operations using her mine hunting sonar to scan the sea bed and the water below herwith SNMCMG-2 off the coast of Romania.

TCG Akcay then used its ECA Group's PAP remote controlled mine discovery vehicle (RCMDV) to investigate the possible mine further. The RCMDV is remotely controlled from the mine hunter and used to identify mine-like objects using an onboard camera. The RCMDV can also lay a 100kg explosive charge to destroy the mine.
