SYMBOLOGY

NEXT

slide2

Today you will receive a class on military symbology. At the end of this class you will be able to properly identify five basic symbols.

NEXT

slide3

First, some basic instructions on how the program works.

This button will take you to the previous slide.

This button will take you to the next slide.

slide4

First, let’s identify why military symbology is used.

One use for Military symbols is to track unit locations on maps. Without a standard way of tracking unit locations, maps would become cluttered with information, written in a random fashion.

slide5

A unit is here and I don’t know who it is, it might be

Friendly or it might be enemy, but I’m not sure…

No report of anything going on here…maybe

We should check it out…

Three vehicles here doing

something…

Something is

going on here,

enemy unit

Located here

doing

Something…

Unidentified unit located here

Infantry unit

Here, I think it’s

an enemy unit

Friendly unit located here

For example…

slide6

See what I mean? Not very pretty, is it?

Let’s start with the basics. When plotting unit locations on a map, friendly units are in blue boxes, while enemy units are shown in red diamonds.

Friendly

Enemy

slide7

Friendly

Enemy

In the center of the symbols is where we put what type of unit we are plotting, for example a tank unit or infantry unit. This is where our lesson begins. What do we put in the center for each unit?

slide8

This class will teach you five basic unit symbols. The unit symbols you will learn are:

  • Infantry
  • Armor
  • Mechanized Infantry
  • Artillery
  • Air Defense
slide9

Student Check #1:

What color is used for a friendly unit?

Red

Yellow

Blue

Black

Press the box next to the correct answer

slide10

I’m sorry, this is not the correct answer.

Back to Student Check 1.

Review of Symbol Colors

slide12

Infantry

When we talk about infantry, we mean the “Grunts.” No vehicles – they walk where ever they go!

slide13

Infantry

The symbol for infantry is an “X” in the middle of the box or triangle, as shown here. A good way to remember this is that the “X” resembles crossed rifles, the universally accepted symbol for infantry.

slide14

Armor (Tank)

Tanks are used to close with the enemy and defeat him through applying overwhelming fire power at the decisive point. Tanks generally have a large main gun and are well protected with armor plating.

slide15

Armor (Tank)

The next symbol is for armored or tank units. It is an oval in the center of the box or triangle, as shown here. The oval represents the tracks the vehicles move on.

slide16

Student Check #2:

What is the symbol for a enemy infantry unit?

slide21

Infantry

When we talk about infantry, we mean the “Grunts.” No vehicles – they walk where ever they go!

slide22

Infantry

The symbol for infantry is an “X” in the middle of the box or diamond, as shown here. A good way to remember this is that the “X” resembles crossed rifles, the universally accepted symbol for infantry.

Back to Student Check 2.

slide23

Mechanized Infantry

The next symbol we need to learn is mechanized infantry. To keep infantry as safe as possible, they ride in vehicles called Armored Personnel Carriers (APC). Since these vehicles combine the protection of tanks with the lethality of infantry, the symbol is the combination of the previous two symbols.

slide27

Artillery

Artillery assists infantry and armor units by providing fire support. Artillery comes in all shapes and sizes, from little 105mm guns…

slide28

Artillery

…to larger pieces that can lob shells over 20 miles!

slide29

Artillery

The symbol for artillery is a round circle in the center of the box or diamond. The circle represents the cannon balls fired by old artillery pieces.

slide30

Air Defense

The final symbol we will learn today is Air Defense. Air Defense units protect the infantry, armor and artillery units from enemy air attack. Their mission is simple – shoot down enemy planes!

Defense System

Self Propelled Air Defense System
