MN Tourville (D609)

The MN Tourville (D647) docked at Brest in July 2008.

The Tourville-class is a class of large high-sea (blue water) destroyers of the French Navy specialized in anti-submarine warfare. They have anti-air and anti-surface capabilities.

Between 1994 and 1996, the Tourville, Duguay-Trouin and De Grasse were refitted with the modern SLASM anti-submarine system, and active Very Low Frequency (VLF) sonar.
