ROCS Cheng Kung (成功, FFG-1101) is the lead ship of eight Cheng Kung-class guided-missile frigates, which are based on the Oliver Hazard Perry-class of United States Navy. Laid down on 2 December 1990 and launched on 27 October 1991, Cheng Kung was commissioned in service on 7 May 1993. All of these Taiwanese FFG's have the length of the later long hull Oliver Hazard Perry FFG's, but have a different weapon and electronics fit.

In order to control the different weapon systems on board that the Mk 92 can't integrate into, a second CDS, H930 MCS was installed on all 8 ships in order to control the 8 HF-2(or 4 HF-2 and 4 HF-3 on PFG-1101 and PFG-1105) and the 2 x Bofors 40mm/L70 guns(except on PFG-1110). Rest of the ships in this class will receive 4 HF-3 upon their major overhaul.

Namesake[edit | edit source]

Cheng Kung is named after Cheng Ch'eng-kung (鄭成功) (1624 - 1662), who was a military leader at the end of Ming Dynasty that led the recovery of Taiwan from Dutch colonial occupation in 1662.
