The concept here is that each Automaton is assigned to a human soldier who acts as his PAeL, pronounced PAL.
A painted example. They wear the US Army helmet as a method of identification.
Many of them also wear a shirt as well as an American insignia on his chest.
The decal on the chest is the official PAeL Automaton insignia, a gear with thirteen teeth in red, inside a five pointed star, inside a white disk. Not unlike the early WWII US Army Air Corps Insignia.
Wearing a GI shirt and helmet the Automatons are almost indistinguishable from human troops.
