    French lizard, unknown cut?

    Post by koalorka on Wed Mar 09, 2011 11:28 pm

    Hey folks, looking for the advice from you French experts.

    I've been seeing these lizard-pattern (or leopard as the French call them) jackets quite often, that have a 4-pocket cut, but are unlike the complex and heavy TAP-style camo smocks. Here is a good example:



    I've seen the French refer to it as the TTA 47/52, but I cannot find any concrete sources to confirm this, or where and by whom it was used. I know there are numerous imitations used in Africa that are similar, so I am somewhat confused.

    Thanks in advance.

    What do the model year designations represent? I've encountered TTA 47, 47/58 and Mle 1958 in reference to these shirts.

    Which one is correct?
