HTMS Naresuan (FFG 421) is a modified version of the Chinese-made Type 053 frigate. Commissioned in 1995, it displaces roughly 3,000 tons with a length of 120 meters. While the design is Chinese, most of the electronics as well as weapon systems are from western origin.

The electronic communication systems on the twin frigates “Naresuan -Taksin’ will allow communication between the frigates and Thailand’s JAS-39 Gripens. Early this year, the navy had also installed a similar electronic communication system on Royal Narubes vessel to connect with the Gripen’s advanced early warning system, according to ScandAsia.com.
