The G class is one of the frigate classes of the Turkish Navy. They are extensively modernized versions of ex- Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigates of the US Navy, mainly designed for air defense with a weapons configuration that is optimized for general warfare.

The G-class frigates have undergone a major modernization program which included the retrofitting of a Turkish digital combat management system named GENESIS. The system was designed and implemented jointly by the Turkish Navy and HAVELSAN, a Turkish electronic hardware systems and software company.

USS Estocin (FFG-15), the ninth ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry-class of guided-missile frigates, was named for Captain Michael John Estocin (1931–1967).

On 3 April 2003, Estocin was decommissioned, stricken from the Navy list, and transferred to Turkey as that nation's TCG Göksu (F 497). As of 2015, she is still in active service.
