The Bretagne was a large 110-gun three-decker French ship, built at Brest, which became famous as the flagship of the Brest Fleet during the American War of Independence. During the French Revolution she was renamed Révolutionnaire. In May 1794 she was badly damaged, lost all her masts, and was towed to Rochefort. She later took part in the Croisière du Grand Hiver, where she was too heavily damaged by the battle to be repaired. She was broken up between January and May 1796. A scale model of Bretagne is on display at Brest naval museum.
