Hi! The topic is pretty much the question. I realize that green symbols mean the tank is on your team, and red symbols mean they're the enemy, but I'm talking about the shape of the symbols. I notice that some of them look like diamonds, some look like triangles pointed down, some look like two stripes, and others look like three stripes. What do these mean?

Diamonds: Light tanks
Two rectangles in the shape of a diamond: Medium tanks
Three rectangles in the shape of a diamond: Heavy tanks
Square: SPGs
Inverted triangle: Tank destroyer

Tiers and level basically.

A diamond is a light tank upside down triangle is a tank destoryer, square is a SPG, I believe the dashes are for mediums and heavies...based on the tiers

Corrected and clarified.  Technically the first reply answered this, but I think this way is easier to comprehend.

It shows the tank's classification (SPG, light tank, medium tank, heavy tank or tank destroyer), not tier, level or anything else.
