Hellenic Army Tactical Signs
Most Hellenic army armoured vehicles carry a tactical plate holder on both sides. This is a square 40 cm x 40 cm frame which holds four metal plates that can display three shapes in orange or magenta. These are used during exercises to designate "friendly" and "enemy" forces and formations or units.
The use of this device begun around 1994 and it can be seen on almost all AFV types apart form the Leopard 2. It has also been seen on M113 family vehicles, the BMP-1, the VBL armoured car, Μ109 family self propelled guns and their FDC vehicles. It has also been seen on a few soft-skin vehicles such as Hummers and Mercedes 240GD field cars.
