Big Seas vs. French Frigate Latouche video

This video has been out for a while. It shows a French warship, a frigate, "Latouche"

Latouche-Tréville is a F70 type anti-submarine destroyer of the French Navy.

Here is a Wikipedia article about the ship
https://g.co/kgs/0VrKBz

The frigate is 456 feet long. Notice the ship at point 1:20 in the video and notice the size of the wave it goes over, in comparison to the 456 foot long ship. Big wave.
