The most commonly worn parade dress consists of camouflage uniforms worn with coloured kepis, sashes, fringed epaulettes, fourragères and other traditional items on appropriate occasions.

HistoryEdit

Camouflage Europe Centrale (CEC) was introduced in 1991, replacing both, TAP 47 pattern camouflage and khaki F2 uniforms as used by the French military. It is a four-colour (Beige, black, brown, and green), pattern of woodland shapes optimised for French forests.

Two variants of the CEC are used in French military uniforms, which consist of the Uniform T3 and the Uniform T4.[2]

In 2019, the Tenue Combat F3 uniform was announced to be the standard uniform in CEC for the French Army.[3]
