"Tonnerre" Landing Helicopter Dock
Limoges is the sponsor of the "Tonnerre" Landing Helicopter Dock
Commissioned at the start of 2007, the “Tonnerre” LHD is one of the largest in the French Navy.
The town is a sponsor of this project in order to:
Several of the corridors of the ship bear the names of streets in Limoges: Place Denis Dussoubs, Rue Jean Jaurès, Rue Monte-à-regret…
In 2009 Limoges was awarded the Sponsorship Trophy from the Association of Sponsor Towns. “Operation Tonnerre” is one of the actions rewarded by this Trophy.
Following the success of Operation Tonnerre in 2008 (an educational project set up by the schools of René Blanchot and Jean le Bail), a new project has been set up during the 2012-2013 school year to facilitate exchange with the Tonnerre, with the primary schools of Vigenal and Bellevue selecting two classes to maintain a special relationship with the crew of the projection and command ship.
