    Chinese export, I don't believe the French made lizard pattern uniforms in the F1 cut.

    I think it is French manufacturing, not Chinese

    Sadly, there is no way to know specifically who might have used this uniform. They have been available since the early 1990s with incredible consistency of the cloth, cut and other details. The same uniforms worn in Africa were also available in US shops in any size you wanted. I bought one for playing Paintball sometime around 1990 and it was identical to uniforms I bought in the 2000s.
