When Adding A Cameo, this flag defines the sidebar image used for a veteran version of this unit.

The general naming convention of existing cameos is: ____uico.shp, where ____ is the first four letters of your cameo's filename. Cameos should generally have an 8-character filename followed by the .shp extension. Normally this would be ____icon.shp, but veteran icons are usually given the suffix of 'uico' instead.

Where applicable
