    According last White Paper 15 DDG/FFG before 17 obviously need to remains to this number with 15 too just for all missions.

    Before up to 2013 : 17
    2 Forbin
    2 Cassard
    1 Tourville
    7 Georges Leygues
    5 La Fayette no ASW armament and hangar unable to host NH-90 in general a Panther hosted

    2023 about : 15
    2 Forbin
    2 Aquitaine AAW variant/FREDA, 16 Aster 30 replace LACM and AEGIS like
    6 Aquitaine/FREMM
    5 La Fayette modernized presumably at less hull Sonar, TL ? hangar for NH-90 ?
    So necessary for 2025/30 ordered 5 new Frigates initialy planned 11 FREMM, or 5 new ?

    A FREMM want 600 mill €, few LACM only 150 in fact exept missiles on the FFG only one lot for reload, expensive weapons.

    As regards the French FREMM frigates, the French would have had six in the water, but they built one for Morocco, and then they sold one that they had built for themselves to Egypt. So the yards in France have actually put six in the water, and a seventh is getting close. They have done this (launched six) in six years, the first being launched in April 2010.

    The French have three commissioned and in service.

    By comparison, the Italian yards launched six frigates between July 2011 and December 2011, in about 4 1/2 years. Their seventh will launch in February 2017.

    In September of this year, the Italians will have six in commission.
