The 27th Mountain Infantry Brigade (French: 27e Brigade d'Infanterie de Montagne, 27e BIM) is a mountain infantry formation of the French Army. It is heir to the traditions of the 27th Alpine Division FFI, created in 09/1944, renamed 27th Alpine Infantry Division in 12/1944, 27th Alpine Brigade in 12/1962, 27th Alpine Division in 08/1976. and then the 27th division d'infanterie de montagne (27th DIM) in 07/1994. With the end of conscription, all of the French Army's divisions were downsized and the 27th became a brigade in 1999.
