This is my 1:950 Oliver Hazard Perry class Guided Missile Frigate. At one point over 50 of these vessels served in the US Navy. As of now, 30 are in service, and their retirement is being debated. These ships are designed to protect United States naval task groups and merchant convoys from Submarine attack. They are 445 by 45 feet in size and weigh 4200 tons full. They are armed with a 3" Automatic gun, a Phalanx 20mm CIWS, and two triple ASW Torpedo tubes for Mk. 50 12" Guided Torpedoes.
