French Naval Vessel "Dixmude"...

The French Navy's Mistral-class amphibious assault vessel L9015 - Dixmude - docked in Pointe-Noire last Sunday. (29th December 2013.) This is one of the sister ships of the Mistral, which I had the privilege of touring in Togo in 2010. France maintains a close relationship with its former colonies. During my time with Mercy Ships I have seen French warships in Benin, Togo, Guinea, and now the Congo.

A closer view of the ship. Just aft of the Dixmude is Congo's naval patrol vessels.
