Often referred to as super-destroyers in English-language works, these ships were nearly the size of light cruisers. Built just before World War II, neither ship fired a shell at Axis ships during the war, but both were present when the British attacked at Mers-el-Kebir in July 1940, hoping to destroy the French ships there lest they get turned over to the Germans by the Vichy government. Both ships eventually sought refuge in Toulon where they were scuttled by the French to prevent them from falling into German hands. All three articles are GA class.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 01:02, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
