Tenace Class Ocean tugs
http://www.hazegray.org/worldnav/europe/france.htm (near bottom of page)

So there's some database stuff, which gave me a start for a Google search string: france navy A664. You might want to try that and see if there is more on other pages.

Malabar looks like it has the most coverage (and I hope these are the correct vessels re age etc.)
