Georges Leygues Class Frigate
The Georges Leygues class (Type C70 AS or Type F70 AS) is a class of anti-submarine destroyers of the French Navy.[1] They are multi-role ships due to their Exocet and Crotale missile armament, making them especially suitable for the defence of strategic positions, show of force operations, or as high seas escorts. The design was initially officially known as a "corvette" with the designation C70, but were internationally labelled an "anti-submarine destroyer" (hence the "D" in the hull numbers).[2] Subsequently the French referred to the ships as "frigates" with the designation F70.[3]Contents1 Design 2 Ships in class 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksDesign[edit] The superstructures were built to optimise resistance to the blast from nuclear explosions
