From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ROCS Tzu I (子儀, FFG-1107) is the fifth of eight Taiwanese-built frigates based on the Oliver Hazard Perry-class. Laid down in 7 August 1994 and launched 13 July 1995, Tzu I was commissioned in service in January, 1997. All of these Taiwanese FFG's have the length of the later Oliver Hazard Perry FFG's, but have a different weapon and electronics fit.

Like her sister ships, Tzu I was built under license by China SB Corp. at Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, ROC.

As of 2005, Tzu I is homeported at Tso-Ying naval base.
