The Foch (R 99) was the sister-ship of the Clémenceau. She was the second warship named in honour of Marechal Ferdinand Foch, after a heavy cruiser comissioned in 1932, and scuttled in Toulon on the 27th of November 1942.
After a 37-year career in the French navy, on the 15th of November 2000, she was sold to the Brazilian Navy, and renamed São Paulo. As of 2004, she is still in service.
