The multi-mission frigates or FREMM, built in the framework of a Franco-Italian cooperation, are the new generation of frigates of the French Navy. These frigates will exist in anti-submarine or anti-aircraft versions. The seed of the French program is Aquitaine, commissioned in 2012. Based in Brest, its primary mission is anti-submarine combat in the context of the protection of the nuclear submarines of the Strategic Oceanic Force.

Witness to the policy of acquisition of the museum in the field of the French navies today, these two models were realized according to very strict quality criteria. In 2013, they joined the permanent exhibition spaces at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris and the Chateau de Brest, the home port of Aquitaine.
