HNoMS Roald Amundsen is a Fridtjof Nansen-class frigate of the Royal Norwegian Navy.

Built by the Spanish shipbuilders Navantia, in Ferrol, Roald Amundsen was the second of the Fridtjof Nansen class to be launched and then commissioned into the Royal Norwegian Navy.

In January 2018 Roald Amundsen arrived at Naval Station Norfolk with the German Sachsen-class frigate Hessen, preparatory to both deploying on a Composite Training Unit Exercise with USS Harry S. Truman and Carrier Strike Group 8.
