Item Number: Richelieu
The Richelieu was a battleship of the French Navy, lead ship of her class. She served during World War II, first on the Vichy Regime side, notably fending off an Allied attempt on Dakar, and later in the Free French Naval Forces, and served with Allied forces in the Indian Ocean in 1944 and 1945. She was used during the Indochina War, and served into the 1960s.

From 25 May 1956, she was used as an accommodation ship in Brest, and placed in reserve in 1958. The Richelieu was condemned on 16 January 1968 and renamed Q432. She was scrapped by Cantieri Navali Santa Maria of Genoa in September 1968. One of her guns is on display in the harbour of Brest.
