Unit Symbols


Unit symbol modifiers are combined with basic unit function (branch) symbols to create a composite symbol that represents a unique type of unit. All modifiers are placed in either the center of the frame, upper half, or above the basic function symbol with the exception of airborne, mountain, and light modifiers. These are placed below the basic function symbol. In addition to the modifier symbols, text may be used inside the symbol frame to further clarify the symbol.
