The Richelieu and Jean Bart were the last, largest and most elegant battleships ever built for the French navy, serving well into the 1960s. These ships were designed to counter the Italian Littorio class Battleships being built in the mid to late 1930s, and were essentially scaled up versions of the proceeding Dunkerque class Battlecruisers.
