A t-shirt for the CAV crew! 

The Armoured Cavalry Regiment (ACR) provides the Army with the core element of its high-end warfighting capability through the provision of armoured protection, mobility and firepower on the battlefield. Currently, it is equipped with the M1A1 Abrams tank (M1A1) and the Australian Light Armoured vehicle (ASLAV) CRV.

The Black Skippy is a homage to a long tradition going back to the White Kangaroo painted on armoured vehicles in Africa. For many diggers, this patch is a good luck charm, a symbol of fighting spirit and in some cases a symbol of fear for the enemy. 

The Red Kangaroo can be found on the side of most Australian Army vehicles today, however, such as the Bushmaster and the Abrams tank.

The Australian Red Kangaroo (and the "Tactical Kangaroo" - the same decal but painted very dark grey) insignia would be a great addition to War Thunder's decal options. The design of the Red Kangaroo Insignia, as shown below, was first used in 1955, when the crew of the HMAS Queensborough painted a Red Kangaroo on one of her smoke funnels to distinguish her Australian origins while attached to a Royal Navy frigate squadron.
