I propose a plate be attached to a particularly well armored or
unimportant point on a tank or other fighting vehicle. This
plate would be decorated with a set of eyes, a religious
epithet, a hated (to the enemy) symbol, or something else
that would make it look vulnerable or incite hatred. In
anyone targeting the vehicle would want to attack that point
more than other parts.

Not an unimportant or well-armored section. [Cedar Park, Aug 08 2010]

||They actually do something similar with urinals. Certain brands of urinals come with a little fly painted onto the ceramic, so the men end up aiming for the fly. It reduces splashing and thus saves on janitorial costs.
||Tanks are already pretty phallic. They could drag an immense pair of testicles along the ground behind them. Unlike ordinary testicles, these could be replaced.
But I am not sure anyone attacking tanks these days actually sees them from up close.
||When this 'weak spot' is hit, make the entire vehicle flash white. Then gamers will never shoot anything else.
