The first vessel in a series of eleven, the submarine Daphne was christened on 10 October 1955. Put on the slipway in March 1958 in the Dubigeon shipyards in Nantes, it was floated on 20 June 1959 and had its first tests on 14 January 1961, upon which date it left Nantes, and went by Cherbourg for completion.
Entered into service between 1964 and 1970, the 1000 tonne conventionally powered Daphnes were high performance submarines. Embodying the characteristics of propulsion, detection, silence and manoeuvrability of the "ARETHUSE" class, of which they were an extrapolation of sorts, the specifications of these oceanic submarines emphasised the depth of immersion, the means of detection and weaponry. But they could not reload their pipes in the sea.
