FS THÉTIS - A785

After a few days in King George V Dock, the French Mine Countermeasures War Experimental Ship THÉTIS sailed this morning, together with FS LION. THÉTIS, which was built at Lorient, joined the French Navy in 1988 and is a 900-tonne displacement ship of 59 metres length. Designed for evaluating different types of mine detection equipment, she can also be used as a minelayer. THÉTIS is based at Brest.
