Is sense 4 (terrorist, slang) real, or perhaps only restricted to fiction and video games? A quick search finds a bunch of schlocky-looking novels, one historical reference to charlie tango (CT) for “communist terrorist”, and one non-military book. —Michael Z. 2008-10-27 20:02 z
The English meaning of "enemy" is explained as coming from the NATO phonetic alphabet, which implies that "tango" refers to some other word beginning with "t", but this word is not mentioned. Based on an earlier comment, I'm guessing it's "terrorist", but I can't find a source to verify it. Attys 03:19, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
