The Tinaztepe class were two destroyers built in Italy for the Turkish Navy in the 1930s.

These ships were versions of the contemporary Italian Folgore-class destroyer[citation needed] or Freccia-class destroyer[1] and were purchased while being built for the Italian Navy. In contrast with other Italian destroyers built for export they had their main armament mounted in two twin turrets.
