On Assemblergames a screenshot surfaced of an unknown CD-i game named "Jour J", (translated D-Day) developed or published by french based game development team "Loriciel". Loriciel I originally know from Amiga but apparently they did something on CD-i too. "Jour J" is a military themed shooter, but it seems like the screenshot is built with polygons, which sounds unlikely to be on CD-i. Until more proof is found I'd take it with some questions.
From Mobygames: "This multi-genre game represents famous historical events of World War II called D-Day. Driving a tank and fighting as a tank team with enemies in French villages. All kinds of gameplay differ in looks from 1st or 3rd person perspective in simulator-like missions (tank and plane respectively) to isometric (infantry) and platform (paratrooper) with corresponding actions made in all of them."
It's remarkable that Jour J was originally developed for the Atari in 1993 in the english language. I've found some credits to check so we'll have a closer look when we find out.
