ORP Generał Kazimierz Pułaski is one of two Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigates of the Polish Navy. Formerly serving in the United States Navy as USS Clark, after her transfer to Poland she was named for Kazimierz Pułaski, an American Revolutionary War hero in the United States and an independence hero in Poland.

Clark was decommissioned and stricken on 15 March 2000. That same day, she was transferred to Poland. She is propelled by two General Electric LM-2500 gas turbines and two 350 horsepower (261 kW) electric drive auxiliary propulsion units.

She was renamed on 25 June 2000 in a ceremony attended by Madeleine Albright. Commander Marian Ambroziak was the first Polish Commanding Officer. Generał Kazimierz Pułaski is homeported at Gdynia (Oksywie), and has participated in numerous NATO exercises in the Baltic.
