Marne is a Durance-class command and replenishment tanker of the French Navy. In addition to its primary duty as a fleet tanker, Marne is configured as a flagship and has served as such in the Indian Ocean.

ENS El Fateh (971) is the lead ship of the Egyptian Gowind-class corvette of the Egyptian Navy. El Fateh was laid down on 30 September 2015 and launched on 17 September 2016 by DCNS in Lorient. She was commissioned on 22 September 2017.

The Gowind design is a family of steel monohull frigates, corvettes and offshore patrol vessels developed since 2006 by France's Naval Group, formerly known as DCNS, to conduct missions in the littoral zone such as anti-submarine warfare (ASW).

The Gowind family includes vessels with lengths from 85 to 111 meters (278 ft 10 in to 364 ft 2 in) and displacement from 1,000 tons to 3,100 tons.

The platform's weapon system consists of multi-functional radar and MICA surface-to-air missiles (SAM). It is armed with Exocet anti-ship missiles.

The propulsion system is based on Combined Diesel and Diesel (CODAD) and includes water-jets for improved maneuverability in shallow waters and high-speed performance.
