Are combat units not allowed to get creative about their logos now? Umm.. The whole purpose they exist, and have since man formed a group to go fight another group has been to kill people and break things. Some of the logos of World War II got censored for sexuality ( silly..but that was then) but aggressive and nasty? Ooo.. The meaner the better. Some were real art too. I don't see this as anything particularly meaningful beyond somebody thought it would be really cool for the emblem.
As an added meaning maybe? The Grim Reaper is a phantom and can't be killed. The drones are unmanned and simply reappear ..when the replacement comes
on station. A little black humor if you're into that sort of thing is my guess. lol....
I saw the link and S/F bringing the story. It's an interesting logo. As a graphics guy I appreciate the design of it. I'd also note some outlets
seem to have way too much time and imagination sometimes.
