Re: Hell Hounds Logo Ideas

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I came up with the idea of trying to create a logo for the 87th Special Forces squadron, so I'm posting up some ideas that I came up with. They don't have any text on them, but depending on the feedback I get, I might add some later.


To make the images I combined various dingbat symbols I found on the internet, and came up with some pretty interesting things. Any 87ths can share their opinions on the designs, and then we will have a vote at a later date.


So critique away!!

















Tell me what you think!

Those are pretty good. I like the fourth one the best. But, my vote doesn't really count for anything since I'm not part of the squad. Never the less, pretty good!

I must say they're all pretty nice logos, all unique and have different meanings. Though artistically, I like them, but to be used for the 87th, I disagree. They are nice, but in my opinion there is not a single logo their that depicts who we are. Remember a logo depicts the one or the group that carries it. So I'm sorry...they are nice...but for usage, none.


So, I might as well help you from all my critique. Think about the Strike Rouge or Cagalli's logo. Make something between the lines of that logo and something that is more "devilish", "dangerous" and "deadly". Remember who we are... we are the 87th Special Forces Hell Hounds. Try to also get some inspiration from other special forces logos from real-life. By then you can come up something suitable for us.


I myself will try also to make a logo. Anybody else make up some suggestions...and give a hand for Grace for us to start with

Alright! I'm bound and determined to get this right!!


Well, looking back at the designs, I'm beginning to see where you're coming from Konig. I was concentrating alot on making them look Cosmic Era...ish, and not really about meanings, or the symbols I was using.


I was thinking that, since the Hell Hounds is our AF unit, and the HQ is in the US, then perhaps I could use some symbols that represent the US, like a bald eagle.

Of course, that particular example might not be the most original idea...but I need something to start with. I'm really going to need some suggestions from others for this... So give me some input, people!!

Actually...that's not a terrible idea. For something rough, that's something I would consider. Not necessarily the combination of the two, but perhaps a dog/dog's head could be incorporated into some of the ideas. After all, a black dog is said to be an omen of death. Thanks for that Roromi! I'll be adding that to the ideas list.

Hmmm...I thought about logo too...maybe hound should look like "steel nightmare" - i.e. more like robot, than mythical creature....and  if it would be consisted from weapons...more like weapon itself...errrr,for example, not ears, but radars, not tooths,but knifes and so on... *I can imagine it, but I cannot draw it(( *

And I absolutely versus US\AF style - well, my character EF's, so...

Ah the steel wolves clan, I was more of a Dragon's Fury fan myself (though they had terrible range <_<).  That and Mercenaries, mercenaries in that game were pretty good .  I don't play the game anymore, but my brother does occasionally, and he uses steel wolves; they start off terrible, but they get stronger the longer in you get (and it didn't hurt that he had a Catapult he could snipe me with either V_V).

      Okay, so it's been a little while, and since it's a new school year for me, it means I gotta keep myself busy in one way or another, or I'll have no will to pay attention in class ; that means I'm doing a little spring cleaning in the EA HQ, and I'll be adding some long overdue updates to the Compendium and Colliseum boards.  First on my list of things to do, start up the Active Check thread .
      Here's the new layout for the Active Check, since the addition of nation leaders has given me a reason to edit check-in process:  Post your character(s) names, their accompanying ranks within the EA, whether they're an NPC or not, and their nation of allegiance (Atlantic, Eurasian, East Asian, etc...).  As an example:
      Lieutenant Lune Zoldark , Atlantic Federation
      Vice Admiral Bian Zoldark (NPC), Atlantic Federation
      Crewman Recruit Kyra Relm (NPC), Atlantic Federation
      It's just that simple folks

      Will teams be formed to organize the EA?
    • By Kaizer
      Konig and I have started up a new thread in the Eurasian Federation boards, named Action and Reaction.  All earth alliance members are welcome, preferably those who have their basic pilot's licenses.  This could be a good way for earth alliance members to meet and RP with members from a different squadron, as well as give a good reason to start RP'ing again in general. 
      Also, as always, I encourage people to post in the EA headquarters more often.  We don't want the other factions to be plotting too far ahead of us, now do we? .

      [align=center]O.M.N.I. Enforcer[/align]
      [align=center]87th Special Forces Regiment[/align]
      [move]Your Most Powerful Weapon is Your Mind[/move]
      Special Forces Soldiers possess boundless ideas and creativity and always thinks of new ways to organize and strategies. The Earth Alliances' Special Forces make up a unique, unconventional, combat arms organization. Highly trained and seasoned professionals— they are the most versatile Special Operations soldiers in the world. Warfare has new rules and calls for a different type of Soldier—a new warrior.
      Their missions often require rapid and discrete responses to unique situations throughout the world.  As the Global Scouts for the OMNI Enforcer, Special Forces_ ubiquitous presence generally guarantees that Special Forces is the first on the ground or already at a crisis location as trouble emerges. For this reason they are experts in unilateral direct action operations and unconventional warfare, as well as having thorough knowledge of foreign languages, customs and cultures.  In addition, they are masters of training and organizing insurgents, surrogate fighters, indigenous forces and foreign militaries in support of Earth Alliance objectives.
      Special Forces team members work closely together and rely on each other for long periods of time, both during deployments and in garrison.  Because of this, they develop close relationships and personal ties which foster a team cohesion and esprit de corps.
      They are mentally superior and creative, highly trained and physically tough. Alone and part of a team, they work in diverse conditions, act as a diplomat, get the job done in hostile situations and, at times, establish residence in a foreign country or terrestrial establishments.
      These Soldiers are part of the OMNI Enforcers Special Forces (OESF)—the Earth Alliances' most specialized experts in Terrorism/Counter-Terrorism, Direct Action Operations, Internal Defense, Special Intelligence and Reconnaissance, and Unconventional Warfare.
      Primary Mission:
      [align=center]Terrorism / Counter - Terrorism[/align]
      Special Forces are often deployed to preclude, preempt and resolve terrorist incidents. They prevent, deter and respond to terrorist activities and train other EA nations' military in the basics of fighting terrorism. One of the main goals of the Counter Terrorism exercise is to thwart terrorist uprisings or cells from forming and relentlessly hunting down terrorist organizations to extinction.
      But also in some means, Special Forces also conduct Terrorism acts. Such unlawful doing would only be used upon ordered by the highest authority of the OMNI Enforcer. Upon given the order, Special Forces will conduct various types of Terrorism in their knowledge such as Propaganda of the Deed, Agro, Bio, Cyber, Eco, and Nuclear Terrorism. And also using acts of Hijacking, Kidnapping, Hostage Taking, Murder, Bombing and Assassination.
      [align=center]Direct Action Operations[/align]
      [move]The Element of Surprise: The Special Forces Deadly Weapon[/move]
      Direct Action missions are short duration strikes that are used when Special Forces want to seize, capture, recover or destroy enemy weapons and information or recover designated personnel or material.
      In many instances, Special Forces are in and out before the enemy has time to know what hit them. Many of these actions are quick-strike missions, usually involving a raid or ambush of an enemy camp.
      Often, Special Forces use Direct Action to remove an enemy who is gaining power and influence in another nation. Other times it is used to protect EA nationals or Soldiers being held in foreign countries whom are deemed as enemies.
      [align=center]Internal Defense[/align]
      When a nation needs to purge lawlessness or protect itself from rogue nations, Special Forces’ tactics are put to use. But campaigns are also employed during times of peace to help nations prepare for unwanted or unwarranted attacks by enemies.
      Special Forces organize, assist and train the military and national defense forces of EA nations. Those governments can use the tactics to protect their citizens from aggressors.
      Not do they train and assist other armies of the Earth Alliance but also track and block out agents or insurgencies from procuring classified data from EA nations.
      [align=center]Special Intelligence and Reconnaissance[/align]
      [move]Going Behind Enemy Lines Without Detection[/move]
      Oftentimes, before the Earth Alliance makes a strategic strike against an adversary, Special Forces are sent behind enemy lines to run Special Reconnaissance missions—covert, fact-finding operations to uncover information about the enemy.
      These intelligence-gathering activities monitor as much about the enemy’s movement and operations as possible and are considered by many to be the most important Special Forces mission.
      Special Forces teams survey enemy bases, machinery and weapons and send back the information to their commanders in order to best prepare for a strike.
      Special Reconnaissance missions generally take place before any movement by our military. Without that vital information, EA Soldiers might be caught off guard and unprepared when entering enemy territory.
      Not only does this involve in battlefield situations but also in enemy controlled establishments. Gathering information and procuring vital data from this establishments may also have the answers to what might the enemy do or what they are hiding away from Earth Alliance.
      [align=center]Unconventional Warfare[/align]
      Special Forces have long employed the use of Unconventional Warfare , a.k.a. guerilla warfare, to train forces in enemy-held or controlled territory. Unlike Direct Action, which is generally a quick campaign, UW can last even longer.
      UW missions give the EA Forces time to enter a country covertly and build relationships with local militia or natives, who are taught a variety of tactics including subversion, sabotage, intelligence collection and unconventional assisted recovery, which can be employed against the enemy.
      By using UW training, the EA can possibly prevent larger conventional attacks. And because of deep roots set up by UW missions, other Special Forces tactics, like Direct Action or Special Reconnaissance, can be launched quickly and seamlessly.

      Okay, for those who were original EA members, this should be pretty standard fare, for those that are new here's the deal;  I needs to know just who is still hanging around the site.  So just sign in if you're still active, and if you see this, but are planning on leaving the site, then just send me a PM.  The better informed I am of our member turn out, the more actively I can go about planning events and team assignments.
      And for the sake of officiality (I don't think its a word, but I'm making it into one ), Lune Zoldark, aka Kaizer, signing in.
