In profile they are very 'modern'
Rear aircraft catapult and hangar that could quite easily be a helipad
Small funnel
Tower bridge one could imagine Aegis fitted to
Armament forward, that could be missile launchers (or less dramatically a vertical missile bed)

Kirov class battlecruisers feature a similar layout today.

Does anyone think there is a chance that Hobbyboss will bring these lovely ships out in 1/700? How do the Samek and WSW kits compare?
Many thanks.

Good evening. I turn to the experts of the French Navy. None of these books mention these small cannons., But I would like to know more about them "Caliber and Type" and in many photos it is clearly visible that they are also with the butt .... Thanks in advance. Regards, Ivan

8 pieces of 330 mm (model 1931 C. 1932) in 2 quadruple turrets. In order to prevent the two turrets from being knocked out by a single stroke, they were 27 meters apart.
- 16 guns of 130 mm (model 1932 C. 1932) in 5 turrets
- 10 guns of 37 mm in 5 double warps (model 1933)

Not sure I qualify as an expert on the Marine Nationale but I do have Robert Dumas' book on the Dunkerque Class:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cuirasses-Dunkerque-Strasbourg-Dumas-Robert/dp/2909675750

This contains a plan which lists the guns you refer to as 'Canon de salut de 47' which would translate as 47mm saluting gun. A quick google of that threw up the following:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_de_47_mm_mod%C3%A8le_1885
http://www.fortiffsere.fr/artillerie/index_fichiers/Page2775.htm

I don't know for a fact that these are the correct guns but it seems plausible that they might be?
