Chi Kuang was the third of eight Taiwanese-built frigates based on the Oliver Hazard Perry-class. Laid down on 4 October 1992 and launched on 27 September 1993, Chi Kuang (繼光) was commissioned in service on 7 March 1995. 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.


Chi Kuang was named after Ch'i Chi-kuang (戚繼光) (1528 - 1588), who was a famous general of the Ming Dynasty that led numerous successful defenses of China's coast against Japanese pirate attacks and later also led the successful reinforcement work on the Great Wall of China.
