The Jeanne d'Arc-class Aircraft Carrier is a class of large aircraft carriers for the Marine Nationale. The Jeanne d'Arc features many improvements over the Charles de Gaulle-class in terms of its technical sophistication. The Jeanne d'Arc-class is also expected to be France's first aircraft carrier to be successfully powered by nuclear reactors having learned from the many problems that plagued the Charles de Gaulle during its sea trials.
