I'm currently reading through Dale Brown's 'Fatal Terrain' to make up the next entry on my version of the 'Fictional Warships' list (See also my posting of the 26th of October 2017 for a link to the last time I tackled one of his books.), despite being an aviation oriented writer, he sometimes throws up some interesting (if vaguely described ships.)
In this case it's a Taiwanese Frigate, where I suspect the authors start point was the Ching Chiang Class Patrol Craft (Kuang Hua III).
Kuang Hua III Class Frigate (Fictional?)
Armament: 1 x 40mm gun (Fwd), 2 x 20mm Phalanx (Fwd & Aft), 36 Round VLS (12 Harpoon, 10 ASROC, 14 Standard AAM), 4 x Torpedo Tube (21 inch?), .5 Mgs, Sea Sparrow.
Has a helipad and hangar space capable of holding 2 x S-70C(M)-1/2 Thunderhawk Helicopters, normally carries one.
I will note before I go any further that the Kuang Hua I project was the Perry Class Frigate and the Kuang Hua II project was the Kang Ding Class Frigate. The author does not provide dimensions/layout, but the 36 round VLS and the twin Sikorski S-70 hangar plus the landing pad should impose some minimum dimensions on the size of the ship.
Here is the quote from which I got the details above.
"The vessel is a French-designed indigenously built Kwang Hua III-class frigate. One of the Nationalists' new toys. Launched just last year."
"Has a thirty six round vertical launch system with twelve Harpoon anti-ship cruise missiles, ten ASROC rocket-boosted torpedoes, and fourteen Standard antiair missiles - the Standard missiles can be used for surface attack as well. Four side-firing torpedo tubes. Sea Sparrow close-in and anti-missile system, 40mm bow-mounted duel-purpose gun, Phalanx close-in defence cannons fore and aft, and several 12.7mm machine gun mounts."
"Very impressive", Yi mused...
"Large helicopter hanger, can carry two small helicopters," the first officer continued. "Typically carries one S-70 helicopter, armed with AS-30L laser guided attack missiles, or Harpoon anti-ship missiles."
