FS Auvergne (D 654):
 
FS Auvergne makes its first operational deployment at the end of August 2017 by going to the Indian Ocean for a period of four months, in order to test all of its military capabilities as part of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF-150) , before his admission to active service.

On April 14, 2018, along with US and UK forces, the frigate and other navy vessels participated in the bombing of Barzeh and Him Shinshar in Syria in retaliation for the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

In March 2019, it joined the Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 to participate for two weeks in a series of nine anti-submarine warfare exercises as part of the annual exercise Dynamic Manta.
