La Motte-Picquet (D645)
La Motte-Picquet is a F70 type anti-submarine frigate of the French Navy. She is the fourth French vessel named after the 18th Century admiral count Toussaint-Guillaume Picquet de la Motte.
The Georges Leygues class (Type F70 AS) is a class of anti-submarine destroyers of the French Navy. They are multi-role ships due to their Exocet and Crotale missile armament, making them especially suitable for the defence of strategic positions, show of force operations, or as high seas escorts. The F70 is internationally labelled an "anti-submarine destroyer" (hence the "D" in the hull numbers), though the French do not use the term and refer to the ships as "frigates".
