Save this for later

Normandie, the sixth multi-mission frigate (FREMM) built for the French Navy was handed over to France’s Directorate General of Armament (DGA) in Brest on 16 July. 

The FREMM programme, being run by OCCAR, is delivering six anti-submarine warfare variant frigates and two anti-aircraft variants by 2022. The vessels are being built by Naval Group. 

The DGA has already completed sea trials of Normandie along with an industrial team including Naval Group, the OCCAR FREMM Programme Division and the French Navy. 

FREMM is a versatile vessel with advanced automation. Its main missions are maritime zone control, precision strike and support for projection operations.  

The vessel is also capable of embarking the Caiman multi-role embedded helicopter.
