The Oliver Hazard Perry-Class is a class of frigates named after the American Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the hero of the naval Battle of Lake Erie. Also known as the Perry or FFG-7 class, the warships were designed in the United States in the mid-1970s as general-purpose escort vessels inexpensive enough to be bought in large quantities to replace World War II-era destroyers and 1960s-era Knox (FF-1052) class frigates. Intended to protect amphibious landing forces, supply and replenishment groups, and merchant convoys from submarines, they also later were part of battleship-centric surface action groups and aircraft carrier battle groups/strike groups. Fifty-five ships were built in the United States: 51 for the United States Navy and four for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). In addition, eight were built in the Republic of China (Taiwan), six in Spain, and two in Australia for their navies. Former U.S. Navy warships of this class have been sold or donated to the navies of Bahrain, Egypt, Poland, Pakistan, and Turkey.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

Oliver Hazard Perry-Class Frigates appear on several maps in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, but appear just as scenery and do not impact gameplay and cannot be interacted with.

Oliver Hazard Perry-Class Frigates appear in Battlefield 3. Several Oliver Hazard Perry Frigates can be seen in the Battlefield 3: Launch Trailer, along with Nimitz-Class Aircraft Carriers and Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyers and other United States Navy ships. It should be noted that the frigates have their missile launchers removed and in their places, a Phalanx CIWS can be seen.
