Not to be confused with the Francs-tireurs et partisans, another Resistance movement.

Franc-Tireur was a French Resistance movement founded at Lyon in November 1940 under the name "France Liberté". It was renamed "Franc-Tireur" in December 1941 on the proposal of Jean-Jacques Soudeille.

Franc-Tireur was also the name of the movement's clandestine newspaper, which published 37 issues from December 1941 to August 1944.

Under the guidance of Jean Moulin, the movement merged with Libération-Sud and Combat to form the Mouvements unis de la Résistance (MUR).
