I'm taking a step away from my usual USN aircraft and delving into the armor reaam (gasp!). However, it is a futuristic sci-fi idea so the contamination won't be terminal. ; ) I'll be the first to admit I don't know squat about armor; anything with treads and a B.A.G. is a tank, and I don't have ready access to modern US armor, so I have a couple Q's, which are--1. Do we still put stars on the sides of non-UN equipment? If not, what US identifying markings do we use? 2. Does armor have a numbering system like aircraft, and is there a method to the madness, ie, is there a visible number/letter sequence on each piece that specifically identifies it as a hummer, tank, etc? My idea is for a piloted robotic thing, sort of like the Transformers, and I have no clue what category that might fall into for appropriate markings.
