    What is the current French Army load carriage system?

    Hi folks I am just curious as to what constitutes the general issue load carriage system for french troops?The majority of pictures i have seen recently have french troops wearing some form of MOLLE enabled body armour with pouches mounted directly onto it.I have also seen CE pattern zip up battlevests and Arktis type battlevests in some photos.Which is the standard issue??
    Also what is the standard issue patrol pack and large rucksack.I see alot of french troops in Afghanistan and Mali using camelbak packs.Are they unit purchases??
    Confused. Embarassed

    I might be mistaken, but I recall seeing French soldiers last year on patrol at CDG airport wearing some new type of kit.
