FFG 7 Oliver Hazard Perry

Perry, lead ship of the Navy's largest ship class, was named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. When it was built in 1977, it was the first ship to incorporate modern gas turbine engines, computerized controls and sophisticated weapons.

Oliver Hazard Perry most recently completed a three- month cruise to the Great Lakes, visiting 14 ports in support of recruiting in the very waters where Commodore Perry delivered his memorable words, "We have met the enemy and they are ours."

The Perry was decommissioned in Feb 1997 at Mayport FL.

The Perry took part in BALTOPS 1994
