Frigate 734 Vendémiaire berths at the Suva Port

Frigate Vendémiaire berthed at the Suva Port at 8am on Wednesday morning for a three day stopover.

The crew of the Vendémiaire were welcomed by the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces Band where they also performed a ’meke’.

French overseas frigates have been designed to carry out surveillance missions as well as humanitarian action and enforce French interests far way from mainland.

The Vendémiaire is built with efficient propelled engines, an adaptable weapons system and is able to deploy a helicopter. French overseas frigates are well designed for remote operations with limited threat in bad weather conditions as well as for humanitarian intervention to support or evacuate populations in pain.

The Vendémiaire will depart our shores on Saturday.
