They develop defense tools in order to ensure peace within the borders of the country, to protect the country against threats from outside the country, and to be cautious, due to the fact that the countries are on the sea or ocean sides due to their geographical location, or because they are surrounded by large lakes or rivers caused by landforms. These vehicles, which are used on or underwater, are exposed to the effects of water and the sun. Rusting, fungus or mold formations are observed on these vehicles, which are exposed to water for a long time. Similarly, vehicles exposed to the sun for a long time are exposed to premature rusting, surface deterioration, and capillary cracks. These problems encountered in underwater and surface vehicles affect the life span of the vehicles. In the production of underwater and surface vehicles, they are produced from aluminum and alloy materials, keeping durability and lightness in the foreground. Different types of coatings are used to protect vehicles whose aluminum materials are overexposed to water and sun exposure. In our study, it is aimed to observe the effects of water and sun and to see the reactions to the coating types. Fungus-mildew test is applied to observe the water-borne effects. In order to observe the results of the sun effect, it is exposed to the solar radiation test. These tests are applied in accordance with the MIL-STD-810-G standard. In order to apply the fungal mold test and the solar radiation test, the samples were prepared by applying anodized coating types to the aluminum 6061 alloys. Aluminum alloy samples were coated by applying type 1 class 3, type 2 class 1 type 2 class 2 type 3 class 1 type 3 class 2 types of anodized coating. Aluminum alloy samples with the anodized coating will be compared with each other to evaluate the results after solar radiation and fungal mold test.
