São Paulo A-12, served in French Navy (1963-2000) as Foch, R-99, transferred to Brazil, served 2000-2018. After a long debacle to try and have the ship scrapped in Turkey, the tow was turned back before Gibraltar, due to concerns over asbestos and other hazardous contamination. After months of towing outside of Recife/Suape port by Alp line tugs, the hulk was seized by naval tug NAPOC Purus and sunk in deep water on 3 February 2023. This ranks as one of the most problematic disposals.
