Bath Built Cruisers & Frigates

Between the late 1970s and the early 1990s, Bath Iron Works began a busy program of US Naval construction. BIW is the lead yard for the Oliver Hazard Perry class of frigates, and also build nine of the Ticonderoga class of guided missile destroyers. Many are still serving with the Fleet, while a number of retired Perry class FFGs are active with allied navies worldwide.
