Combat Armor Badge
When the Combat Infantryman Badge was introduced in 1943, other branches argued in favor of their own badges, but a War Department review board just after the war ruled these out. Despite this, unofficial versions of a Combat Artillery Badge, a Combat Armor Badge and a Combat Cavalry Badge were created. In some cases, these were made by simply attaching branch insignia on top of a CIB and repainting the blue field to the appropriate branch color, but others involved making a badge and replacing the rifle of the CIB with crossed cannons (on a red background), a tank (on a green background, or crossed sabers (on a yellow background)
