French forces in
Germany had regular military registration, but on a red background,
often with an additional FFA. An E or an S (Services) may precede the serial
number, often starting with 998. Since about 2005, the E (Economats) vehicles
have a 00-1234 format, either in silver on blue, or white on black background.
Such plates have been seen on SFOR vehicles.
Private vehicules of
military forces in Berlin had a distinctive FZ (Französische Zone) followed with a 4 digit
serial number. Just after 1954, they were on a green background (CW) or had GMB
(Gouvernement militaire de Berlin) on a black background.

Private vehicules for troops
located in other regions than Berlin have blue plates, in which the second
digit represents :
1= Baden-Baden, 2=Freiburg, 3=Landau-Pfalz, 4=Trier, 5=Villingen-Constance, 6=former-Tübingen (end in 1977), 7=Reutlingen. In July 1999, most of french troops left Germany, but in several places (1, 4 and 5) Eurocorps french-german troops replaced them and still use these blue plates.
