USS George Philip (FFG-12), sixth ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry class of guided missile frigates, was named for Commander George Philip Jr. (1912–1945), posthumous winner of the Navy Cross for actions as commanding officer of the destroyer USS Twiggs. She was the frigate short-hull variant (Flight I).
George Philip was expected to join the Portuguese Navy in 2006, together with her sister ship Sides, but the Portuguese Navy dropped the offer and chose two Dutch Karel Doorman-class frigates instead. George Philip was expected to join the Turkish Navy in the summer of 2008, together with her sister ship Sides, but the Turkish Navy dropped the offer. As of May 2012, both frigates were awaiting their fates at anchor in the Sinclair Inlet off the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.
