Ha - that picture has been floating around the web for a good 9 years that I can remember! It's a destoyer if I remeber right - frigates are a thing of the past... The current burkes carry a compliment the size of a perry class and I wouldn't doubt the length being similar as well...

It's Turkey's first indigenous dedicated anti-submarine corvette but carries guided missiles and can engage surface combattants as well. They use stealth tech too. The first one is scheduled to be put on the water in September. They have 12 on order.

Pretty sweet, if you ask me.
