The four vessels of the Suffren-class were based on the Duquesene-class, though each was built to slightly different standards as lessons were learned from the preceding ship. Their hull form was sleek and graceful, taking a classic cruiser form. While the Duquesne-class lineage was apparent, the Suffren-class had a much more modern look about them. Armour protection was somewhat better than the preceding class, though speed was reduced as a consequence.

Foch spent the early period of WWII in Dakar as part of Force M and formed part of a force bombarding Italian assets near Genoa. After the fall of France Foch joined Vichy French forces before being scuttled with other French vessels in late 1942.
