The Cheng Kung-class frigates are guided-missile frigates (FFG) currently in service of the Republic of China Navy (ROCN). They are based upon the American Oliver Hazard Perry-class and built by China Shipbuilding Corporation in Kaohsiung, Taiwan under license throughout the 1990s as parts of the "Kuang Hua One" patrol frigate, guided project. These frigates served as the mainstay of the ROCN's theater air defense prior to the ROCN's acquisition of Keelung-class destroyers in 2005.
