This is a list of frigates of the United States Navy, sorted by hull number. It includes all of the series FF and FFG ships. Prior to 1975, ships that are now classified as FF or FFG were classified as DE or DEG (destroyer escort). The frigates are slowly being removed from active duty in the Navy to be eventually replaced by the Littoral Combat Ship.

For age-of-sail era frigates, see List of sailing frigates of the United States Navy. For PF (Patrol Frigate) ships, see List of patrol vessels of the United States Navy.
