The Enseigne Roux class was a class of two destroyers of the French Navy, laid down in 1913, and launched in 1915, seeing service in the First World War. The ships were named the Enseigne Roux and the Mécanicien Principal Lestin. The construction of a third ship of the class — the Enseigne Gabolde — was suspended in 1914, and she was not completed until 1923 to a modified design.[1]
