This role was in general escort french by a destroyer escort such as the Buckley and Cannon classes built in the United Statesor a Hunt-class destroyer built by the United Kingdom, or even a River class escort french by the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
The Imperial Japanese Navy used the denomination of Kaibokan for this type of naval ship. In the immediate aftermath of the war, to fulfill the task of naval escorts, the French Navy was limited to a fleet of torpilleur and contre-torpilleur otherwise known as destroyersalong with a of avisos. During the years —, France reconstituted the navy with the assistance of the United States which contributed most of the rebuilding program.

The deation of « escorteur » is no longer used in the French Navy. The deation has been replaced by that of frigate, aviso or patrol boat.
