The Redoutable was the lead ship of her class.
Commissioned on the 1st of December 1971, she was the first French SNLE (Sous-marin Nucléaire Lanceur d'Engins, "Device-Launching Nuclear Submarine"). She was fitted with 16 M1 ballistic missiles, delivering 450kt at 2000 kilometres. In 1974, she was refitted with the M2 missile, and later with the M20, each delivering a one-megatonne warhead at a range over 3000 kilometres. The Redoutable was the only ship of her class not to be refitted with the M4 missile.
The Redoutable had a 20-year duty history, with 51 patrols. She was decommissioned in 1991. Since 2000, she is used as a naval museum at the Cité de la Mer in Cherbourg, being now the largest submarine open to the public.
