Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate

Oliver Hazard Perry class frigate


Honolulu, Hawaii (HI), US
The Oliver Hazard Perry class of frigates were purchased by the U.S. Navy in the 1970s and 1980s as general-purpose escort vessels capable enough to do most jobs adequately, yet cheap enough to be bought in large quantities to replace aging World War II-era destroyers.

They are named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (a distant relative of mine!)
