    They certainly had it by 1994 when I watched the Bastille Day parade in Paris.

    It is surprisingly hard to find anything definitive on this.

    the earliest date that I can clearly identify it is 1991 on tanks, erc90, and AMX10RC

    This page quotes a NCO witness of the 1er RHP (but that’s an elite unit) having┬ápainted vehicles in “trois tons” as early as 1987:

    Also this, dated August 87:
