France has 1 Carrier(CV), 5 Battleships(BB), 7 Heavy Cruisers(CA), 7 Light Cruisers(CL), 52 Destroyers(DD) and 63 Submarines(SS) at the start, and boasts a reasonably somewhat modern - if badly understrength - fleet. Whilst the Marine Nationale is strong enough to decisively defeat either the [[Germany|Kriegsmarine]] or the [[Italy|Regia Marina]] alone, it would have no chance against a combined Axis fleet. As with her tanks, France begins the game with modern naval technology, such as 1936 BB, DD and SS techs and two unique designs: La Fantasque, a destroyer model with tier 3 (1940) engines, and a the Surcouf Class submarine model with 3 custom slots. Many of these designs are clearly aimed against an anti-surface role, prioritizing fast, lightly-armored ships with minimal ASW capability and strong scouting capabilities. However, poor naval infrastructure and low shipbuilding priority means that constructing a large modern fleet is not easy, and in fact can often be counter-productive in that it denies vital raw materials from tank and motorized production. {| class="wikitable mw-collapsible mw-collapsed"|+ style="width: 55em; text-align: left;" | {{nowrap|Naval units list}}!
