Frégate antiaérienne type F70 AA Jean-Bart D615

The fantastic Battleship Jean Bart. She was the last Battleship completed in the world, and one of the finest, in my opinion. Armed with 8 15in guns, they were carried forward in quadruple turrets. She also had an expansive AA outfit, which was mostly obsolescent with the advent of the jet age.

The Charles Martel was a pre-dreadnought battleship of the French Navy built in the 1890s. She was laid down in April 1891, launched in August 1893, and completed in June 1897. She was a member of a group of five broadly similar battleships, along with Carnot, Jauréguiberry, Bouvet, and Masséna, which were ordered in response to the British Royal Sovereign class.

French Predreadnaught with tumblehome to beat the band. Some people think these ships are ugly but I know they are wrong.

Bows-on shot of French Battlecruiser "Strasbourg." Distinguishable from sister "Dunkerque" by extra level on her bridge structure. Under her accomplished commander, Capitaine de vaisseau Louis Edmond Collinet, escaped destruction by the British at Mers el Kebir in July 1940 (the British were afraid the Vichy France government would hand over warships to Germany). Scuttled at Toulon to prevent German capture,  November 1942.
