French naval forces would likely find it difficult to meet additional tasks or deployment with their existing assets, according to a senior official.

Speaking to journalists during a press conference on 19 September to announce details for the upcoming Euronaval maritime defence show, a senior official from Marine Nationale said that standing tasks or missions could be dropped if a new requirement arose. 

‘It is very busy, the same for all navies of a similar size. If a new mission was decided we would have to decide between the two [and] define which mission has priority,’ he said.
