WELCOME TO ALPHA RESPONSE CENTRAL COMMAND
The overall shield shape is naturally indicative of the 316th being a protective force from acts of terror. The sword in the middle is symbolic of the razor sharp edge the 316th troopers train to, as well as the lethality of their strikes. The globe behind the sword symbolic of their capability to strike anywhere - anytime!
The official command designation is 'ALPHA RESPONSE CENTRAL COMMAND' or A.R.C.C. for short. The 316th troopers are known (by the few who know of them) as the "Archangels".
Historically speaking, Archangels are known to be the ultimate protectors of the human race, ever-present and omnipotent beings fighting the fiercest of battles against evil, while mostly all go unaware that they were ever once in danger.
The wings therefore, which dominate the insignia of the 316th Special Operations Command, represent both the ultimate strength and power of the unit as well as the inherently covert nature of its very existence.
Take note! - these wings extend from our parent command...
