France Navy Destroyers

France classifies its escort ships by size and not function, therefore each class is assigned a role, either ASW or Missile which are primarily Air Defence, the later classes are more universal in capability. The terms Destroyer and Frigate are also used interchangeably with the title of Frigate belonging to what other navies would term Offshore Patrol Vessels.
