Military symbols provide an alternative to the profile icons used in TripleA, 

Contemporary NATO symbols can be found in File:App-6aHandbook.pdf.

For late cold war, see APP-6.

The symbols used during the Korean War can be found here [1].

The navy does things differently in MIL-STD-2525. Pages 7-9 are most useful.

Abbreviations for naval vessels can be found in the wikipedia article [2]. The latest naval symbology can be read in File:FILE N 1000508.pdf.

If you are using military symbols I would suggest putting the nation's flag immediately below the unit symbol at the same size.

These colorful symbols are from Fort Sill's webpage. Military Symbols.GIF

These symbols are contemporary symbols from HistoryOfWar.org. Good treatment of air & naval forces.
