French Frigate L'Hermione

Recommended Posts

The cast iron of the cannons started this month (in French): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xbFHboB5Hc

 

The hull has been launched in 2012 and the sailing tests should begin this year:

 

 

The frigate will make a "La Fayette trip" from Rochefort to Boston around the spring of 2015. Then it may sail to Annapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphie, Newport, Hampton, Portland and/or New York.

I hope so, we have many British ships and few of any other nation.

 

Would offer to build her myself but I have started too many ship projects and first must finish at least one of them  ^_^

I have visited the site at La Rochelle in 2003 or 2004 - very impressive. I'm glad that the ship is now nearly finished. I would really like to see here in Naval Action.

I recently have been to HMS Victory and was very impressed although the rigging was not complete at all because of intense repairs on it. Kinda sad but still worth the trip from Devonport to Portsmouth.

 

This specific french ship is just wow. Wonderful line of a classic "traveller around the world" a frigate. Looking forward to see her finally at sea.

now they can finish the hornblower tv series with it ;)

Do you think the Hermione is the frigate Hornblower sailed?

At least its the correct shiptype. But the "HMS Lydia" was a british design.

That was a darn epic novel btw..
