The Fr.F is a large flapper transport built for the French Air Force. It is designed to deliver large numbers of troops to a combat zone in the presence of light-to-medium resistance. The combina-tion of a large power plant and the flapper capabilities provide a reasonably high speed and high maneuverability as well as the ability to travel more quietly. The Fr.F can land on land or water. The primary method for offloading troops is from the powered ramps towards the front of the ship, however, there was also a rear ramp that could be used to disembark parachutists.
