The Fraser-class guided missile destroyers (or CDX-I) are a class of four guided missile destroyers under construction at the MIL-Davie Shipyards in Sorel and Lauzon, Quebec. They are named after rivers of Canada. The River-class is intended to replace the first four Iroquois-class destroyers with the subsequent Columbia-class replacing the latter six.
