French Georges Leygues class frigate underway

The Georges Leygues class ("F70 type") is a type of anti-submarine frigate of the French Navy. They are polyvalent (multi-role), due to their Exocet and Crotale missile complement, making them especially suitable for defense of strategic positions, demonstrations, or high seas escorts.

The superstructures were built as to optimize resistance against nuclear explosion blasts.

The F70 is internationally labeled an "anti-submarine destroyer" (hence the "D" in the hull numbers), though the French don't use the term and refer to the ships as "frigates".
