French Navy 1930-50

Superb fast battleships! The French battlefleet was built up through the 1930s as a counter to the increasingly powerful Italian naval forces. Fast battleships and battlecruisers were supported with modern cruisers and destroyers. The fall of France saw the Navy split between Vichy and Free French, unable to concentrate as a unified force.
