The Yıldız Class is one of the Fast Attack Craft / Missile Boat classes of the Turkish Navy.

Designed by Lürssen Werft in Germany, these ships are almost identical with the Rüzgar and Doğan classes, having the same hull, machinery and weapons; but are fitted with better combat control systems (STACOS) and sensors. Both ships of the class were built in Turkey.
