USS Antrim (FFG-20) was the twelfth ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry class of guided-missile frigates. She was named for Rear Admiral Richard Nott Antrim (1907–1969).Ordered from Todd Pacific Shipyards, Seattle, Washington, on 28 February 1977, as part of the FY77 program, Antrim was laid down on 21 June 1978, launched on 27 March 1979, and commissioned on 26 September 1981. After a short pause at Rota, on 24 July, for fuel, the warship embarked upon the Atlantic passage that same day. On 5 August, one month to the day after her relief, Antrim pulled into Mayport. Post-deployment stand down occupied the remainder of August, but she resumed local operations out of Mayport, early in September. During the latter half of November, the warship voyaged to the coast of Colombia, to assist in a multinational operation against drug smugglers. She returned to Mayport, at the beginning of December, and following a short period of local operations, settled into holiday routine. As of the beginning of 1987, Antrim was at Mayport.
On 30 January 1987, Antrim was assigned to the Naval Reserve Force, Atlantic, at Mayport.
Decommissioned on 8 May 1996, she was transferred to Turkey, on 27 August 1997. She was stricken from the U.S. Naval Vessel Register on 4 September 1997.
