USS Fahrion (FFG-22), fourteenth ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry-class of guided-missile frigates, was named for Admiral Frank George Fahrion (1894–1970).

Ordered from Todd Pacific, Seattle, WA on 28 February 1977 as part of the FY77 program, Fahrion was laid down on 1 December 1978, launched on 24 August 1979, and commissioned on 16 January 1982. Transferred to Egypt on 15 March 1998 as Sharm El-Sheik (F901), she was formally decommissioned and stricken on 31 March 1998. As of 2012, Sharm El-Sheik remained in active service with the Egyptian Navy.

Fahrion (FFG-22) was the first ship of that name in the US Navy.
