I did a google image search for the French destroyer Maillé-Brézé and found a few images of her in this "Camouflage."

Obviously its some type of art project, but all the sites I've seen about it are in French. Anyone know anything about it?

It won't make it into the game because no one can pronounce the name of the ship unless you're French.

31/08/2015 post from https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=https://www.meretmarine.com/fr/content/le-maille-breze-recouvert-dune-oeuvre-dart-urbain&prev=search

The article is quite long so I've only copied the 1st paragraph over.

Paint bombs in hand, artists will tackle this week at the hull of Maillé-Brézé. As part of the international festival of urban art Teenage Kicks, organized in Nantes and Rennes by the associations of More Colors and Graffiteam, the former escort of Navy squadron, transformed into a museum in Nantes in 1988, will wear a new livery. A very peculiar look imagined by two French artists, Velvet and Zoer, who are now among the big names of Street Art on the international scene. That the old soldiers and the purists of the gray boats reassure themselves, the Maillé-Breze will not emerge from this adventure covered with a tangle of graffiti, even if the idea could have had its charm, as the street painting can see emerge artistic treasures.

A couple of French street artists, Velvet et Zoer, were commissioned to repaint/graffitti Maille-Brézé as a temporary town publicity stunt. They drew inspiration from British razzle dazzle camo.

Much more here, with pictures, though you will want to run it through Google translate if you can't read French.
