Te Kaha is built to the German Meko 200 Class design with sections of the ship built separately in Australia and NZ and final fitout was in Williamstown, Australia . The name Te Kaha is Maori, meaning 'fighting prowess' or 'strength'. The first of the Royal New Zealand Navy's (RNZN) ANZAC class frigates, TE KAHA was launched in Melbourne on 22 July 1995, and commissioned in Auckland exactly two years later. Te Kaha’s roles include protecting New Zealand, our maritime resources and our neighbours surveillance; Civil Defence; Search and Rescue; participation in UN peacekeeping missions; and providing gunfire support to troops on the ground.. Te Kaha has already completed several deployments to Australia for joint exercises and has visited many ports in the Far East. She has also deployed to the Persian Gulf and taken part in ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’.
