FS Languedoc (D 653):
 
On April 14, 2018, the frigate participated in the bombing of Barzeh and Him Shinshar in Syria with the United States and the United Kingdom. The frigate Aquitaine not having been able to fire its missiles in the allotted time and neither the Auvergne, it is finally the frigate Languedoc which carries out by firing three MdCN of which this is the first operational use.

Languedoc was engaged, alongside the HNLMS De Ruyter and a maritime patrol plane Atlantique, in Operation Agenor for the benefit of the European Union (within the framework of EMASOH) for the surveillance of the Strait of Hormuz from May 19, 2020, replacing the frigate Forbin.

On August 6, 2020, the incorporation of Languedoc into the operation was extended by three months thanks to the replacement of crew B by the A - which is a first for a French Navy vessel in operation since the passage to double crew in 2019, carried out in 72 hours at the French naval base in Abu Dhabi at Port Zayed, thus ensuring the permanence and continuity of the frigate's commitment to its mission. The frigate was then accompanied by the HNLMS Iver Huitfeldt replacing the HNLMS De Ruyter.
