"Suffren" class destroyer, 1:350
French destroyer with guided missiles. LDD-version, 1:350 scale.
About this creation


"Suffren" class missile destroyers were first-rank ships of the French Navy, designed to protect a fleet against air threats, surface ships, submarines, and, to a lesser extent, provide firepower against land objectives. They were the first French destroyers to be built specifically as guided missile ships.




The French class designation is FLE 60 - "fregates lance engins". The primary weapon is "Masurca" surface to air missiles which are launched from a twin launcher on the quarter deck. 48 missiles were carried. Detection of air targets was via the DRBI 23 3D-radar housed in a massive radome. Anti-submarine weapons include a "Malafon" anti-submarine missile system (13 missiles carried) and torpedo catapults. "Exocet" anti-ship missiles were fitted in 1977-79.




The ship had a unique recognizable silhouette. Set weapons was perfectly balanced. The only drawback may be called the impossibility of basing the helicopter.




The two ships were designed as escorts for the "Clemenceau" class aircraft carriers and are similar in concept to the British Type 82 destroyer.




The ship has a modern design for its time and was equipped with weapons entirely French production.




During the period of long-term service destroyers "Suffren" and "Duquesne" not take a direct part in hostilities, but took part in several operations of the French fleet in various local conflicts. In the late 2000s, the two destroyers were replaced by anti-air frigate "Horizon" class.




My model is built in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took only 438 (356 - above waterline) bricks

Quoting BATOH rossi the "Suffren SPb"...I like it :)
Yes :) I'm specifically looking ship designs - the mast tilt in both directions. If the two do - it will be too massive at this scale. And with the reverse tilt destroyer it looks worse.

Quoting BATOH rossi Excellent ... but, if you allow me, the tilt of the mast is not reversed?
Thanks for comment. Yes you are right. I tried both versions tilt . Unfortunately, at this scale , I could not make a smooth slope of the foremast . In the end, I chose the one with which the destroyer looks faster :) Another construction of the mast I did on Tourville.
