!!''Gymnote''
A conventionally powered test platform for SLBM development, test-firing first the M1 and then the M4. Carried four missiles, and was retired in 1986.



!!''L'Inflexible'' class

to:

!!''L'Inflexible'' class
!!M4
A larger three-stage missile replacing the M1 on the Redoutable class. Carried 6 150-KT warheads in MIRVs, as well as double the range of its predecessor.



!!M45
Derived from the M4, it brings longer range while being of similar size and payload. Equips the Triomphant class, and is starting to be replaced by the M51.

!!M51
A compromise from the much larger and longer-ranged (and much more expensive) M5, it has a further range boost on the M45 and can carry up to ten warheads.



!!"CVF"

A new conventionally-powered carrier under development which will share some features with the UK's ''Queen Elizabeth'' class. The political decision to actually build [=PA2=] (Porte-Avions 2) is still to come and expected for 2012... at the earliest. There is a strong push to ditch the conventional CVF design and instead build a second nuclear-powered carrier using lessons learnt from the [=CdG=]. The main hurdle is financial, as the Navy also needs to fund the renewal of the frigate fleet (using the Franco-Italian FREMM design).

A carrier-based subsonic strike fighter, similar in concept to the A-7 Corsair II, but far less ugly. Soon to be retired, these planes were famously used in the anti-ship role by both Argentina and Iraq.

This aircraft has carrier and land-based versions, with only the air force having both one and two-seater sub-versions, the navy only having a single-seater (only the two-seaters carry nukes). Has seen combat in Afghanistan (the only 4.5 gen fighter to have yet done so, not counting the Super Hornet) and being marketed for export, with Brazil, Libya and the UAE seriously interested.

Added DiffLines:

Their early ballistic missiles would become the basis of the European Space Agency's original Ariane 1 rocket, first launched in 1979. It bears no resemblance to the modern Ariane 5 rocket.

These are known as SNLE (Sous-marin Nucléaire Lanceur d'Engins, literally Devices Launcher Nuclear Submarine (ship)) in French, equivalent to the U.S. Navy terms SSBN (Submarine Ship Ballistic missile launcher Nuclear powered). (Boomers are nuclear-missile subs, for you [[ViewersAreMorons civvies]])
