    According to Maj. Andrew Harshbarger, a spokesman for the US Army Training and Doctrine Command, the purpose of the mallet is to allow soldiers to “quickly identify enemy equipment and distinguish the team from friendly forces“.

    Although Harshbarger has not said that the deck is intended to help Ukraine in the framework of the Russian military special operation, the US media points out that many of the weapon systems that appear were sent to that country last year or are being used to train Ukrainian troops.
