Portuguese paratroopers (paraquedistas) and commandos (Cacadores Especais) early in the Angolan War were issued 1st pattern lizard camo jump jackets

 

The first postwar French camouflage patterns began to emerge circa 1951. One of the earliest and most commonly encountered of these patterns, and one particularly associated with the Algerian War (1954-1962) is this striped or brushstroke pattern printed solely on tent or shelter quarters. The pattern incorporates rust and light green horizontal brush strokes on a sandy background, and is printed only on one side. Historical evidence shows some elite French units had items such as berets personnally tailored from this fabric, but there is no indication that any widespread production of uniforms were ever created for French forces using this pattern.

 

The earliest French tenue de leópard (leopard uniforms) or tenue de saut camouflée (camouflage combat uniforms) feature variations of the shelter camouflage pattern, commonly nicknamed "lizard" pattern. the pattern most commonly encountered on the Mle 1947/52 Troupes Aero-Portee (TAP) uniform.

 

With the introduction of the final version of the French TAP or Airborne uniform and the All-Arms camouflage uniform came a fairly standardized version of the leopard pattern. 

 

this is very collectable Vietnam war gear item nowaday.
