Bonjour Manu,
Yes Foundry Drab would work just fine. Personally I would use Vallejo Panzer Aces Old Wood as it would be a good match as well.  All the best with your project!

Hi !

I try Drab but it's a little too light !

So i use : Rawhide A (I think Drab A could be fine too) => British Uniform B => Drab B => and mix Drab B & C for fine details ...

Initially, the Czechs wore the usual Russian uniform with their own insignia. Then the uniform of the French model, which had a greenish khaki color, was sewn.

Soldiers of assault units had a steel helmet. The Czechs had a Russian helmet (not Adrian).

It depends on what kind of uniforms your Czechs are wearing. If this is the first period (until February 1919 - a Russian uniform), then you can paint them in various shades of khaki. Up to the point that the pants and shirt were of different shades of khaki.
In February 1919, the Czechs gradually began to dress the uniform of a new model, which was sewn from the Japanese army cloth.

Then you can have a significant variety in shades of khaki.

For this period, Czech shock units looked like this:
