Definition of Frigate

  • Frigates are a type of warship. In different eras, ships classified as frigates have had very varied roles and capabilities.
  • For example, after the 2nd World War, while some navies have regarded frigates as principally large ocean-going anti-submarine warfare (ASW) combatants, others have used the term to describe ships that are otherwise recognizable as corvettes, destroyers, and even nuclear-powered guided missile cruisers.
