About This File
This model represents the La Fayette class frigate of the French Navy, in service from 1996 to present. Referred to as a stealth frigate, the La Fayette's angled design and radar-absorbent composites greatly reduce its radar cross section.
Five La Fayette class ships are now in French service, and export variants have been sold to Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore (not included in this package).
The La Fayette is armed with a modernized 100mm gun, 20mm close in weapons, eight MM40 Exocet missiles, and eight Crotale missiles (with reloads). The flight deck can support one medium helicopter.

Special thanks to FRPignon for the hull number decals.
