As older first-line destroyers and frigates were retired without replacement, however, the FFG 7 class has been integrated into the fleet, and numerous updates have been applied to permit it to cope with modern combat conditions.
Early in their operational lives, ships of the FFG 7 Class began to develop serious cracking in the superstructure, which extended from side-to-side and for approximately 70% of the length.
All 22 ships of the class to be retained in active service began to receive Standard SM-1 Block VIB missiles with improved fusing to counter small radar-cross-section missiles in 1994.

Accordingly the mission of the Knox class was altered to ASW Escort from that of a general escort.
The original designation of the Knox class was "Destroyer Escort" (DE) and this was changed in June of 1975 to "Frigate" (FF) but the hulls retained their original numbers.
Frigates resemble destroyers in appearance; but they are slower, have only a single screw, and carry less armament.

 The FFG 7 OLIVER HAZARD PERRY Class
The OLIVER HAZARD PERRY - class guided missile frigates are Undersea Warfare ships with an added anti-air warfare capability intended to provide open-ocean escort of amphibious ships and convoys in low to moderate threat environments.
The first PERRY - class ships were commissioned without the SQS-56 Sonar because production of the system started too late so that it was not yet available during the construction of the ships.
The PERRY - class ships were produced in two variants, known as "short-hull" and "long-hull", with the later variant being eight feet longer than the short-hull version.

 FFG-7 Oliver Hazard Perry Class - Archived 9/2005
Mission.  The FFG-7 class destroyers are designed to escort and protect convoys, underway replenishment groups, amphibious landing groups, and carrier battle groups.  The ship’s missile, gun, and anti-submarine warfare systems, combined with its quick reaction and high speed capability, make the FFG-7 Perry class a valuable asset in today’s multithreat environment.
Design Features.  The FFG-7 class was intended to provide a low-cost supplement to the Spruance class destroyers for escorting convoys, underway replenishment groups, and other slow moving carrier forces.  Although considered by the U.S. Navy to be a frigate, the FFG-7 is classified as a destroyer by the rest of the world.
Santa Maria Class.  The FFG-7 versions built in Spain have significant modifications over the original U.S. version.  The hull structure is shorter (137.7 meters) and wider (14.3 meters), and is fitted with improved stabilization equipment, including small fins on the waterline port and starboard.

 Welcome to Maritime Replicas
Only two frigate classes -the 51 'Perrys' and the Brookes were capable of launching the SAM's -and since the Brookes were built in the 1960's and are due to be phased out -the PERRY's stand alone as a separate type!
The construction of the PERRY class occurred in an approximate period of 10 years between the mid 70's and mid 80's and they now constitute the largest single class of Warships in the world.
The PERRYS were relatively economic to produce due mainly to the unique prefabrication form of construction, with all major components being built and tested separately prior to assembly in modules that constituted the final structure.
