French ASW-frigate type F65, 1:350 scale.
About this creation


The Type C65 corvette was built to counter the improved performance of submarines in the 1960s, and was designed around two recently developed systems: the DUBV43 towed active sonar, and the Malafon anti-submarine missile.


In my opinion it was not quite a successful attempt to build a small antisubmarine version of the destroyer "Suffren". Although considered to be the ultimate evolution of the T 47 class, performance did not live up to expectations, and the development of the propulsion system took much longer than expected. The lack of facilities for landing helicopters was considered a significant drawback, and she was the last major warship built in France without them. Eventually the C65 programme, in which five ships were planned, was cancelled. Instead, the French Navy has implemented a program of construction of powerful anti-submarine frigates class "Tourville".


The ship received several upgrades during her lifetime. In the 1970s she was fitted with the ARBR-16 radar detector and two Syllex chaff launchers. In 198485 the 305 mm anti-submarine mortar was replaced by eight Exocet MM40 missiles, and the DRBV-13 radar in the radome upgraded to the DRBV-15A. In 1988 she was re-designated a Type F65 frigate. In 1992 added the DSBV62C towed passive sonar, two Oerlikon 20 mm cannon, two 12.7 mm machine guns, and the Inmarsat and Syracuse satellite telecommunications systems. In addition, the Decca 1226 navigation radar was replaced with the DRBN34A, and the DRBC-32B radar was upgraded to the DRBC-32D.


My model is built in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 372 (273 - above waterline) bricks.

Quoting Tom's MOCs I especially like your creativity in creating the ship's three superstructures from unusual Lego pieces.
Thank You, Tom!

Quoting BATOH rossi really beautiful, as always! maybe the front launchers are a bit too ambitious ... I'm afraid that only a simpler structure would have been more proportionate :)
Thank you! Yes, that's right, "Exocet" too big :) But I often sacrifice the accuracy of the scale in favor of recognition an important element. The rotary tilt units were difficult to make smaller. So my "Exocets" are the most "Exocets" in the world! :)
