400 years of naval innovation
Naval Group is the inheritor of nearly 400 years of naval innovation and excellence. Major technological, industrial and social advances have marked its history, from the first arsenals created by Cardinal Richelieu in 1631 to the launch of the Suffren, the first Barracuda-class submarine, in 2019. All of them contributed to the superiority of the French Navy, one of the largest navies in the world, and to the leadership of Naval Group.
Products of rare complexity
Amongst the most complex products designed by humanity, Ship Subsurface Ballistic Nuclear (SSBN) submarines are in a league of their own. One million components and 15 million hours of work were needed to build Le Terrible, France’s newest SSBN, while an airliner requires “only” 100,000 parts and 50,000 hours of work.
