Camouflage Daguet is the French military's current desert camouflage. It is the desert variant of Camouflage Europe Centrale.

Camouflage Daguet was introduced in 1989, consisting of broad horizontal of tan and brown stripes on a sandy background.[1]


Although it was introduced in 1989, this French desert camouflage model is commonly known as "Daguet" because it is closely associated with Operation Daguet, where French conventional forces used it for the first time.[2] For the first time since 1991, the air force re-used this camouflage for its ground units in Afghanistan and Tajikistan. It will be necessary to wait until 2012 to review this camouflage within the conventional units of the army with the Opération Épervier, in Chad, then with Operation Serval and in Mali in 2013.
