CLASS LEADER GOES TO SEA — The guided missile frigate Oliver Hazard Perry (FFG7) cast off from the Bath Iron Works and set to sea Tuesday, September 27, on her first sea trials. The gas turbine-powered ship is the prototype of a new class of escort combatants which the Navy expects to eventually number more than 70 ships. BIW presently holds contracts for eight additional FFGs, and options on three more. During this three-day set of preliminary trials, the Perry's home port was Portland's Hussey Sound before returning to the shipyard. Additional trials are scheduled prior to Navy acceptance of the ship.
