    will the crews be swapped also between ships? if not, the French Navy is going to need many more sailors for FREMMs well up to two times more than now

    No, crews A and B are "dedicated" to one ship...
    There is no manning issues because the Cassard and Georgres Leygues classes are getting decommissioned... and They had far bigger crew requirement than the FREMM...

    By the way Jura, did you see this topic ? https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/naval-news-monthly-video-reports.t8585/
    Just a heads up :)

    The French Navy (Marine Nationale) took command of the EUROMARFOR during a ceremony held aboard Mistral-class LHD Tonnerre on September 19, 2019 in Toulon.

    The European Maritime Force (EUROMARFOR) i a non-standing, pre-structured, maritime force that was created in 1995. Composed of France, Italy, Portugal and Spain, the Force remains open to all European Union (EU) members. Primarly dedicated to the EU, it can be employed within the framework of other international organizations such as the UN, NATO, OSCE or other multinational coalitions.
