Hermione is a French warship in service from 1779 to 1793. It's a frigate de 12 (in reference to the calibre of its guns) carrying 26 12-pounder guns and 8 additional 6-pounder guns. In naval jargon we call this "26-gun frigate", although originally it carried 34. It is part of the frigates of the Concorde class, built from 1777 on in the arsenal of Rochefort.
