Default L'Impassible French target ship.

Anyone have any photos of L'Impassible . She was a French target ship. Info from French Warships of WW2

She was apparently building at Lorient when war broke out.

Dimensions were 100m x 12m x 4m

She doesn't seem to have done much and ended up as a breakwater at Mers El Kebir.

Here's the only one I know of, from the 1939 edition of Jane's Fighting Ships. (I'm not sure the "L'" was part of the name.)

Thank you so . so the plan would have been to fit a fake superstructure . With a presumably armoured wheelhouse.

Possibly Tigercat ....depends on the type of wireless [ Radio Control system] that was fitted at that time , so cant really say with any accuracy
