The US Navy frigate is one of the 45 ship Oliver Hazard Perry Class. Tricky ships to handle in confined waters. They have two GE gas turbines driving a single screw with a CP prop, although they also have two small retractable auxiliary props. The main machinery is one half of the plant used in USN destroyers.
