That is what I was trying to describe. The Titans want to be known and are
flashy, as well as arrogant, aren't they? I do not know what the Titans
ideals and attitude are. They did seem pretty sure of themselves when they
where introduced at the end of 0083.

These men wear plain medal-free uniforms of the signal corps.

I see what you mean. They do deserve nice uniforms for their skills, though.
They can use regular uniforms when the need to remain unknown or inconspicous.
