Those peculiar military operations codenamed death or laughter?

  Nolan’s new film “Dunkirk” brought the audience back to the bloody battlefield of World War II. The sophisticated props and highly restored plot made the audience feel like they were there. The Dunkirk retreat was an important military action for the British and French coalition forces in the early days of World War II. In order to keep it secret, of course, we should not just say “I want to retreat” everywhere, but use the “generator plan” as the code name.
  The military operation code is a referential term used in our own exchanges, mostly to prevent information leakage. Now let’s take a look at those battle codes in history.
  Elegance has connotations and is popular everywhere. In order to reflect the profound background of the war, many of those who made the code for the war borrowed from the elements of epic, opera and other elegant arts. In addition, celebrity effects in wars are also quite common.
  The representatives of the Gaoya group can be traced back to the Second World War, when the German army launched countless large and small battles, and their code names were also strange, such as “begging stick”, “black pheasant”, “ball cake”, “late autumn grape”…
  one of them The code name “Aida” has no meaning. “Aida” is a four-act opera created by Italian opera master Verdi. It tells a love tragedy that occurred during the Pharaoh period of ancient Egypt. A piece of music in the play “Glory to Egypt” is very famous.
  The German attack on Egypt in 1942 was called “Aida”. If “Glory to Egypt” sounded at this time, how would the German soldiers feel?
  During World War II, the German military invaded the Soviet Union, code-named “Barbarossa”, embracing the thighs of historical celebrities.
  ”Barbarossa” was the famous emperor Frederick I in German history, also known as “Red Beard”. The Holy Roman Empire under his rule was the most powerful country in medieval Europe.
  Another example is the hunt for bin Laden by the United States after the “9.11” incident, “Gerónimo”, which also ignited the popularity of celebrities.
  Geronimo was an Indian chief in the 19th century. He led the Indians to fight against the American army. He came and went without a trace. It is difficult to find his whereabouts. Bin Laden is also good at hiding. I wonder if the commander who named the operation also thought of this.
  Also in 2011, the military operation of the multinational coalition led by France, Britain, and the United States against Libya was code-named “Odyssey Dawn.”
  Who is the Odyssey? The hero in “Homer’s Epic” who has gone through hardships and returned to his hometown. The code name of the coalition must have taken the meaning of letting the hero lead the Libyan people to the light.
  In the matter of naming military operations, the US military should not let it go when it comes to the “wife selling melons.” Regardless of whether the artillery is justified or unreasonable, first take a noble and just code name, maybe it can confuse people.
  On June 6, 1944, the Allied forces headed by the United States launched a large-scale offensive on the western front of Europe. This was the famous “Normandy Landing.” Of course, it also has a code name called “Operation Overlord”, which has the momentum to look around the world and let me go!
  In December 1989, in order to preserve its vested interests in the Panama Canal, the United States deployed its military secret operations, descended from the sky, captured Panama’s leaders, and disbanded Panama’s military, code-named “Just Cause Operation.”
  After the “9.11” incident, the United States launched a war on terrorism, first with the code name “Infinite Justice Operation” and then “Enduring Freedom”, always letting the banner of “Justice Freedom” hunt on the battlefield.
  The secret code of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor in World War II was widely spread. The Japanese Air Force pilot sent a secret message of “Tora Tora Tora” after a successful airstrike, which translates as “Tiger Tiger Tiger”.
  In 1970, the 20th Century Fox Film Company produced the movie “Tiger Tiger Tiger”, which was about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The film also won the 43rd Oscar for Best Visual Effects.
  Japan promulgated many lingoes during World War II, such as:
  ”Westerly winds are tight”-relations with the United States are tense; “North is sunny”-relations with the Soviet Union are eased; “there is rain in the southeast”-China’s battlefield is defeated; “East wind, rain” -War with the United States; “Daughter returns to her natal family”-evacuation of overseas Chinese.
  But there has never been definite evidence that the attack on Pearl Harbor has a separate code name. Therefore, the code name “Tiger Tiger Tiger” is a bit of “being in the field and not in the court”.
  Compared with the battle codes, the codes of weapons and equipment of various countries appear to be more casual, and the names of animals, generals, and countries are often used.
  During World War II, Nazi Germany’s tanks and armored vehicles were basically referred to as animals, such as “tiger”, “leopard”, “mink”, “elephant”, “mouse” and “weasel”, which were dubbed “Hitler’s zoo” by the Allies.
  We can imagine a picture like this: Allied comrades reminded each other, “Attention! The mouse is coming!” “Quickly, at 3 o’clock, aim at the tiger and shoot!” The style of painting is really strange and makes people think” Blooper”.
  Similar to Germany, Japan is fond of naming warships with different country name variants, such as “Fuso”, “Shikishima”, “Yamato” and “Mikasa”.
  ”Fuso”, “Shikishima” and “Mikasa” are all elegant names in ancient Japan. “Yamato” is derived from an ancient country name in Japan and is also used as a synonym for Japan.
  It seems that these two countries that have made trouble in human history are very fond of “walking one way to the dark”.
  There is a special existence in the weapon code circle, which is the NATO series code name. During the Cold War, NATO countries liked to give China and the Soviet Union some inexplicable code names for their weapons and equipment. The “brain circuit” is simply strange!
  For example, the Soviet MiG-15 fighter is codenamed “Shiba”, the MiG-21 fighter is codenamed “Fish Nest”, the Doyle anti-aircraft missile is codenamed “Long Glove”, and the An-24 transport aircraft is codenamed “Coke”-in short, it is not a good word.
  NATO’s codenames for Chinese equipment are not too much, such as naming various maritime police ships “Master” class, “Branch” class, “Bookhouse” class, and the new generation of large destroyers named “Human Sea” class. It is also very “wonderful”, I don’t know what abacus is in my heart.
  However, we outsiders watched these codenames “lively”, but the one who created the codename was silent about the source of his codename.
  The U.S. Military Command claimed that the names of their military operations were chosen at random and had no special meaning at all-do you believe it? I don’t believe it anyway!
