Barely a week after the entry into service of the frigate Bretagne, 5th unit of the FREMM class, it is the turn of the Normandy to start its sea trials. FREMM Normandie is the 6th unit of the multi-mission frigate class. Like Brittany, it will have sold off its 16 medium-range Aster 15 anti-aircraft missiles for long-range Aster-30 missiles, the same ones equipping the Forbin-class Horizon air defense frigates, and the 2 future FREMMs for Air Defense, Alsace and Lorraine, which will enter service in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
