PR-72P class corvettes are French-designed warships in service with the Peruvian Navy. Six units were ordered in 1976 by the Peruvian Navy from the Société Française de Construction Navale (SFCN). Subsequently, three of them were built by the company's own Villeneuve-la-Garenne shipyard, and the rest subcontracted to Lorient Naval Dockyard. Pennant numbers were originally P-101 to P-106, but were later modified to CM-21 to CM-26, where CM stands for corbeta misilera, Spanish for guided missile corvette.
