List of frigates of the United States Navy

This is a list of frigates of the United States Navy, sorted by hull number. It includes all of the hull classification symbols FF and FFG. Prior to the 1975 ship reclassification, ships that are now classified as FF or FFG were classified as DE or DEG (destroyer escort). The FFG-7 class frigates are slowly being removed from active duty in the Navy to be eventually replaced by the Littoral Combat Ship.

For age-of-sail era frigates, see List of sailing frigates of the United States Navy.For PF (Patrol Frigate) ships, see List of patrol vessels of the United States Navy.
