Why should the onus be on us to disprove a conspiracy theory? Pics and links?

I sense the same problem from the 'butterfly' thread.

The universe does not center on Raaaid.

There are hundreds of thousands of analysts from 60+ countries who go over every little detail on every vehicle, weapon, aircraft, photograph, video and report.

The sheer weight of research of countries trying "one up" each other makes it highly unlikely one post on an interweb forum is going to blow the doors off the defense establishment.

yes i know but why they took it off?

or why they put them on 1st instance?

if you do an image search of abrams youll see the only ones which wear the V are the diecast models

poor diecasters such a hard work and then they take away the symbols

However, if your paranoid, nothing I or anyone else can ever disprove most of you conspiracy theories.

After all, I admit to having a military background. Maybe I'm not really a medically retired aircraft engine mechanic. Perhaps I was/am a USAF OSI (Office of Special Investigations) agent.

Maybe I'm monitoring your activities so you don't get too close to the truth.

Reality is much more mundane. I'm 32, overweight with 90% disability in the VA, with a 3 year old son going through a bout of depression and a nasty divorce.

After a short google search, I found that this conspiracy is bigger than you'd think!

Not just the US support Israel this way but

- the UK

-France

- even South Korea!!!

Furthermore

backward looking V on an MBT

These must be satanist-zionists, or anti-israelists or whatever the david star turned in 90 degrees means.

Good God, the whole world - or this V mark is just a common sign of tanks in many armed forces ?(OK, I know, it's hard to belive the latter.)

You might want to ask all of these guys. I think that they might be Israelis because they are using a piece of the Star of David.

For those of you that actually want to know what the inverted chevron "^" is for on the US vehicles...

In the 1991 Gulf war, it was used as an Coalition symbol to make recognition easier. This was especially important since several of the coalition countries fielded the same equipment as the Iraqis (namely, Syria, Egypt and Kuwait)

Here's some Kuwaiti T-72s...
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c1/jarink/Saudi72.jpg

Chevrons were also used in conjunction with a large number to indicate the unit. In the 1st Infantry Div, all the tank and infantry battalions were assigned a number 10, 20, 30, etc. Support units such as arty, engineers, etc, were assigned numbers with an underline. Service support units (transportation, medical, etc.) were assigned "S1", "S2" and so on.

The second digit of this number indicated the company within the battalion. For example, 11 was Company A, 1/16 Infantry. A chevron was used to indicate the platoon within the company. (top - 1st, right - 2nd, bottom - 3rd, left - 4th).

So, the unfortunate truck in this picture can easily be identified as belonging to 2nd Platoon, Alpha Co, 101st Military Intelligence Bn, 1st ID.

A backhoe cut my internet 1130 local, I was gonna post this:

I put in a Google search: V shaped symbol tank

I got a hit with this.

So the V<>^ is still there, it stands out via infrared.

The symbols are the markings for the company. There is also >, < and ^.
