The French Navy’s FREMM multi-mission frigate Bretagne has successfully completed first sea trials in Lorient, North-Western France, the International Organization for Cooperation on Arms (OCCAR) has announced.

During the trials, performance of the frigate’s propulsion and navigation systems was tested. Further tests and trials of various systems, including the combat management system, are scheduled to take place over the coming weeks.

Bretagne will be France's fifth anti-submarine warfare frigate, and is due to be delivered to the French Navy in mid-2018. Four FREMM frigates have been delivered to the French Navy, and three other ships are at different stages of assembly and construction at Naval Group Lorient shipyard.

The FREMM frigates are equipped with advanced systems, including the Héraclès multifunction radar, naval cruise missiles, Aster and Exocet MM40 missiles and MU 90 torpedoes.
