adj – slang: military phonetic alphabet for letters ‘t’ and ‘u’, used as euphemistic abbreviation for ‘tits up’.
etymology: from military aviation, where the flight attitude indicator on the aircraft instrument panel contained a miniature representation of an airplane which showed the flight attitude – climb, dive, bank; one style of the indicator was shaped with ‘v’ forms between the ‘dot’ – representing the fuselage (body) and the ‘dashes’ – representing the wings; (–v*v– see illus.) the ‘v’s were frequently referred to as ‘tits’; the term referred to the potentially hazardous inverted flight condition – ‘upside down’ – where the ‘tits’ would be seen as being ‘up’.

Tango uniform means DEAD, plain and simple. How that long winded plane explanation that never even defined what phase was actually used to describe got top definition I'll never know. I mean the point was to give the definition of the phrase not the origin of the phrase.
