Framée was the name ship of her class of four destroyers built for the French Navy around the beginning of the 20th century.

On 11 August 1900 Framée was part of the French Mediterranean squadron, which was returning from exercises in the English Channel, when she collided with the battleship Brennus off Cape St. Vincent. Framée sank quickly, with 36 of her crew of 50 killed.[1][2][3]
