The Friesland Class destroyers were built for the Royal Netherlands Navy in the 1950's. They were a larger modified version of the Holland class destroyer with more powerful machinery. Eight ships were built. They were replaced by the Kortenaer class frigates in the early 1980's and seven ships were sold to the Peruvian Navy where they served until 1991.
