"Georges Leygues" class (Type C70 AS or Type F70 AS) is a class of frigates of the French Navy. Scale 1:350
About this creation

Frigates "Georges Leygues" - the main anti-submarine ships of the French fleet in 1980-2000s. The design was initially officially known as a "corvette" with the designation C70, but were internationally labelled an "anti-submarine destroyer" (hence the "D" in the hull numbers). Subsequently, the French referred to the ships as "frigates" with the designation F70.


They are multi-role ships due to their "Exocet" and "Crotale" missile armament, making them especially suitable for the defence of strategic subs positions, show of force operations, or as high seas escorts.


The main requirement was good seaworthiness for round-the-clock use in the North Atlantic, greater autonomy and range.


Two "Lynx Mk4" helicopters are based in the deck hangar. There is lighting equipment and a system of forced landing of the helicopter. On the roof of the deck hangar installed launcher SAM self-defense "Crotale Naval". I even managed to make it eight-shot ))


Closer to the center of the ship are launchers of anti-ship missiles "Exocet" MM38(for the idea of how to make them at an angle to the axis of the ship special thanks to BATOH rossi)


In total, 7 ships were built, the last three of them - according to the updated project. Anti-submarine and anti-ship weapons were reinforced. On the model of the visible launcher improved "Exocet" missiles MM40, who had almost twice the range compared to earlier models. Two ships of the F70 type were built in the air defense version. But they're so much different from frigates "Georges Leygues" that was in a separate class - "Cassard".



Compare with 1:700 scale build.





The frigate escorts anti-submarine cruiser "Jeanne d'Arc".


My model is built in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 530 (412 - above waterline) bricks.

This is one of my favorite ships, a typical multi-purpose frigate from the 1980s. I did not start building for a long time, because the model contains a number of complex elements. First of all-the lattice mast. Also had to tinker with "Crotale" and "Exocet" launchers. I hope you liked it :)

Quoting James Donovan all your great work makes me want to build a fleet! but I still have some old pre-dreadnaughts to finish, especially Petropavlovsk. :)
Thank You, James! Join us! There are too many ships, I don't have time to build them all )))

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Another triumph! Excellent modelling and details, as usual. Still awaiting your naval harbour project...
Thank You, Kurt! The construction of the port has not even started yet... but there will be more ships :)

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Beautiful job! I love how you build the ships mast. Always true to the actual ship.
Thank You, Clayton! You got it right, the mast is largely determines the appearance and accuracy of the ship model.

Quoting Tom's MOCs Exquisite detail! It wasn't until I enlarged one of the pictures that I saw the blades of the ship's propellers. The lattice-work on the superstructure is cleverly done. Being a helicopter fan I appreciate the 'H' painted on the landing pads. Congratulations.
Thank You, Tom!
