Enseigne Gabolde was a destroyer of the French Navy. Originally laid down in 1913 as a member of the Enseigne Roux class, construction was suspended in 1914 while the ship was still on the slips and not resumed until near the end of the war. After extensive modifications, most notably the addition of a third, superfiring 100 mm (3.9 in) gun forward, the ship was launched on 23 April 1921, and finally completed in 1923. She was struck in 1938.[1]
