Six ships were laid down in 1911-12 under 1910 and 1911 programmes and completed in 1913-14. They had four funnels placed in two distinct pairs; ships constructed in naval dockyards had higher funnels. Building cost was 31 million francs. These vessels were quite similar to Bouclier class ships. A tripod mast was fitted on Commandant Lucas. Mangini had to be transported down the Rhone from its builders, Schneider, on a barge specially made for the purpose (in order to clear bridges masts and funnels were removed). All exceeded 30kts on trials, the fastest being Magon which reached 32.02kts.
1916 - 1918, all survived: + 1 x 1 - 75/35 M1897, 2 x 1 - 8.80, 2 DCR (8 - 10).
Renaudin was sunk 18.3.1916 off Durazzo by a torpedo from Austrian submarine U6.
